Hey Guys,

So I have the ProVid Garfiled mount that attaches to speed rail or a plank of wood. However I do not have the bottom bracket that would mount to a dolly. I am wondering if anyone that has one, if you could measure the dimensions. The main dimensions im looking for is the diameter of the inner lip that sits in place and the outer diameter of the whole bracket. I also need the bolt size and thread count that is used. I have a family machine shop that will allow me to make it all I need is measurements. I know that I probably have confused you with what im asking but if anyone does know what I mean please let me know.

thanks,

Mark

The mount that the dolly uses is called a Mitchell mount. Don't know the specs off hand but I figured knowing the name might make them easier to find.

If I remember correctly the Provid vehicle mount had a unique base to it that wasn't a Mitchell (it was sort of shaped like a top hat, right?) Had slots around the lip for driving in screws?

You would be better off making a Mitchell base as it is an industry standard, as Jess says.

Yea Charles thats exactly what I have, and making a Mitchel base is exactly what I want to do. Thats why I need the dimensions of the outside diameter and the inside lip. Just the bottom piece in this pic:

Your in LA right? Drop by someplace like Chapman and chat them up. Bring a tape measure and a camera.

Here is what mine is:
OD 7"
Lip OD 2.86"/ .27" tall. It fits loosely inside the mitchell hole.
.5" tie down, course thread.
There is a low bolt head used for the keyway .36" OD. Threaded holes are spaced every 60 degrees to allow you to change the keyway to allow for proper orientation of the socket block.

Good luck.
