curious to know, if you're using a universal low-mode cage, how do you go about mounting all your lens motors? do you have to add a bridgeplate, or is there some james bond manuveur that i'm missing?

Try some of Jerry Hill's 2-N-1 motor mounts. Or if using 16mm or video cameras fit lightweight matte box rods to the camera body. Careful with Aaton screw ones though if using a Preston, the motors are capable of unscrewing them.

Second on the Hill stuff. I almost never mount motors from the dovetail plate, etc. It will cost you a small fortune, but Jerry's line of products will give you a diverse way of attaching motors to a secure place on the camera body. His Panavision mount is especially great, although it loses some of its flexibility when mounted to something other than a LW.

As for the Aaton rods? I eventually bought a dob-leg that is the correct spacing for these rods so they can't spin.
