Having my machinist make me a few 15-degree-offset lowmode handles/brackets. I believe he will be making them in batches of twelve. I need 9 more units to be spoken for to get the ball rolling. 

 

These are, indeed, the indentical handles that Tom Gleason of Cinewidgets made. He no longer makes them and has sent me the files so I can make this amazing piece of kit available for other Steadicam Operators to benefit from. 

 

Handle/Braket only. Will not come with an armpost. 

 

Price hasn't been set in-stone yet, but back in 2011 the price was $150 with tax. We'll try and keep it in that ballpark.

Cheers.

 

 

EDIT: I originally posted the price as $244.xx which was a mistake. Tom Gleason got a hold of me and relayed the correct price. Apologies.

Only need 2 units to be spoken for for the first run. To reiterate: only $150.

 

Cheers!

Order fulfilled, and then some. We are going to machine most likely Tuesday/Wednesday of next week. Have a great weekend and put your feet up on Labor Day. Cheers.

Please continue to send in requests/orders as it seems that quite a few folks want this item. I will keep a detailed list that is first-come-first-served. 

 

Cheers.

Twojay, Add me to list (maybe 2). I had one but it's gone, been through all my cases. I absolutely need a replacement to use with my MK-V Sled!

has anyone used these on XCS ergo gimbal? obviously it cant be used as oriented in the photo, but in the opposite orientation does it throw the handle into a strange position?

Hey all. Apologies on the delayed response -- I've been working and my schedule's been going from days to nights and then back again. The machinist had a bit of a health hiccup and was ordered by the docs to rest and take it easy. As a result there is a delay in getting the brackets out. I'm done with my current shoot on Thursday and will pop into the shop on Friday to hopefully QC the first batch and give the thumbs-up. Will keep you updated here. Cheers.

Hey guys, what's the advantage to this particular offset compared to the norm?

 

Thx.

Hi Twojay,

Do you still have brackets available for sale?
