Does anyone happen to know the measurements for the Tiffen Steadicam Merlin Arm post? What size would it fit?

Ah nevermind 1/2" post.

Edit as well

Ok i dont know if this is possible but springs are springs. I mean would there be a way to rig a stronger spring to the merlin arm or would that break the pins and post holding it together? It only holds up to 15 lbs so I was hoping for a cheap and dirty way to make it stronger.

Maybe you would be better off getting a Slingshot style rig or an Easyrig.
