Hi 

There is a pin to lock old type F-bracket in Ultra1 gimbal. I didn't recive it in my rig, and my question is, where can I find it or where are any pictures or dimensions to go with to the machine shop?

 

Regards

Stan

Hey Stan, I had a random screw in my ultra kit which I have never had a use for, when I posted a photo of it Robin at Tiffen informed me it was for low mode. But my low mode bracket has an entirely different screw so I still do not know what this other screw is for (maybe your kind of bracket??)... 

 

Check out the original thread and photo

Hey Stan, best to contact Robin at Tiffen Pinewood (depending on where you are located) I am sure he can advise on where to source the pin.

Yeah Andrew's correct. I have an Ultra 1 gimbal on my Clipper and needed to get the correct pin when I got a new low mode bracket. The guys at Tiffen sorted me out, Robin's address is rthwaites@tiffen.com.

Robin hasn't replied me for this week. Andrew could you measure thread on your screw please? Inner diameter is ca. 4mm in handle, but I can't find correct inch thread.

Stan
