Adjustable monitor bracket front to back?

Anyone know of a monitor bracket that adjusts fore and aft? A bracket that you can fix to the clamp and adjust fore/aft and up/down would be really slick.

I have a spare Bracket if you want to play around with it. Specially with your Transvideo LCD it can be very beneficial to be able to pull out the monitor for (dynamic) balance, viewability, etc.
I can only speak for the XCS one. Greg has Post clamps for most commercial Center Posts and can make any spacer rings required. Also the rods are cut to your lengths specs no extra cost. I saw them as short as 3 inches and as long as 10 or 12 inches.
I know he has some rods in stock... I bend a couple...

I also have the XCS monitor mount. Greg's mount is super rigid and has little movement even with a heavy CRT monitor extended all the way out.
This is wonderful in wind!!!! I put the monitor all the way out and two batterys up and the batterys adjusted all the way back..... I think of it as monitor antlers.
Also Greg has got great knowledgeable personal service!.

how much does the XCS monitor bracket cost? I just called but they are going to be out of the office until july 9th.
I believe it's $800, though I'm not 100% positive.

I was thinking of upgrading to Gregg's monitor bracket (I have a couple of the old one's) and I'd love to check yours out. There used to be some vibration when using heavier monitors -- this problem must have been addressed or I would have heard complaints.

"There used to be some vibration when using heavier monitors -- this problem must have been addressed or I would have heard complaints."
The only vibration I have ever noticed with my XCS bracket turned out to be between the plate attached to the bottom of the TB-6 and the monitor arm (I have an earlier style TB-6 where this plate only attaches via two screws). I fixed the problem with JB Weld. Since this time, Tom Gleason has come up with a more elegant solution: http://www.cinewidgets.com/ (look under products for the "TB-6 Stabilizing plate.")
Of course, Greg Bubb makes his monitor brackets in any length you want so I suppose if you had very long rods and extended them all the way, you could get vibration this way too.

looking forward to meeting up with Erwin this weekend for some TB-6 knocking!
