Camera tripod component

Simon used Plastimake to replicate a key component of his camera tripod.

He writes:

I picked up this second-hand tripod off a friend, and one of the clamps on the extendable legs wasn't locking properly. So I took it apart and found that this little piece was missing that helped the clamp actually synch tight. So I took another leg apart and found the piece that was missing, replicated it with Plastimake, slotted it in and it was good as new.

That's really great Simon, thanks for sharing! Being able to make both "negative" mould impressions and "positive" Plastimake casts is a really powerful combination. Just remember to keep your outer mould cool to stop the inner Plastimake from sticking!
