Just wanted to thank Tom Gleason for his great work on my 2" Auto Lock Docking Bracket. (The 2" GoreLock if you want...) After Jerry Hill refused to make one for me Tom took up happily the task to create one for me.

I received my 3rd and final version (which is also the production version) today. I was putting the prototype through the paces for the last 6 months and I'm very happy... it works exactly like the GoreLock (If not better).

As a convinced GoreLock user I didn't wanted to miss the conveniance and security that came alone with that system when I switched to a 2" post on my PRO (Thank you Greg Bubb for the patiance with me and the great Product, BTW: You can get a 2" conversion for your PRO, just give him a call) and later for my Ultimate. He still has some in stock... give him a call or e-mail him:


Now available. Locking docking bracket for 2" posts.
This replaces the fork on Hill Docking Brackets or CP Brackets allowing the parking of rigs with 2 inch posts. Black anodized.
US$485.00 includes one docking rings. Extra rings available for US$80.00
THIS IS A LIMITED RUN! ONCE THEY'RE SOLD OUT I WILL NOT BE MAKING ANY MORE.
For more information contact me at tdgleason@worldnet.att.net or call (818) 769-9370, between 9 am and 6 pm Pacific time.
For information on other products check out my site at
www.cinewidgets.com

He also makes great costum work... if you need anything made for your Steadicam, AKS, etc.... give him a call.

I'll show you pictures of some stuff that he has made for me, as soon as they are available...


And no I don't work for him or am in any kind affiliated with him... jade, jade, jade... bla,bla,bla...

Tom designs other items as well and he does a great job of it. He is careful, very communicative, conscientious and reasonable as far as price goes. I can recommend him without hesitation.

Couldn't agree more. He designed and manufactures both the BFD PRO mounting bracket and the BFD Matte Box Rod Mounting bracket. I'm planning to work with him on the BUZ gimbal mounted control.

More to come.....

Just another voice to the if you need something custom. Tom is the man. He knows Steadicam(assists for many of us) and does great machine work. Because he understands steadicam he is really useful implementing your ideas into really useable pieces. He's working on a couple of my things now!

THANKS TOM!

I just had Tom make me a bracket for the bottom of my TB-6. It eliminates the wobble the monitor had when I would do any whip pans or fast moves. Tom makes awesome brackets.

So you're even powering your docking bracket now? Jeez man, I feel like a caveman compared to you. That light IS cool though. I've been using a rediculous old system called a 'flashlight'! I'm sure you've never seen one but they're very dated.

Take Care,
