    Heavy Duty Deardorff Style Large Fomat Base Plates Made by Ries Tripod

    Replacement Base-Plate for Deardorff and most Large Format Cameras. Better than the original. This is not made from cast aluminum as were the original stock base-plate. These are made with 6061-T6 Aluminum and milled to specifications. Also, there is a threaded stainless steel insert to prevent cross-threading when mounting your camera to the tripod. Thread size available is 1/4″-20 or 3/8″-16. Base Plate is 6 Inches in diameter. If you require another dimension or want a custom base plate please call. Visit riestripod.com and see under accessories. EMAIL OR CALL US AND WE WILL GIVE YOU 20% OFF IF YOU MENTION THIS POST!

    I deleted my original response so I could double-check.

    The inner ring of four screws appear to be rotated if the logo is kept at the top which is a good thing because we can re-drill fresh screw holes. Excellent.

    Do all the other 12 perimeter screws follow the original spacing of the aluminum bed plate? I've several bed plates and found spacing to be finicky.

    And welcome, welcome. So very glad to have you here.

    The screw holes are lined up. If you need fresh holes simply turn 5 degrees and make new holes.

    Yes, I would think that Reis would provide the link in their post. Maybe the new owners are still on training wheels.

    Hope this helps

    I don't know why the quote doesn't match your post #7. Oh well.

    Regarding the product...

    It looks quite nice.

    You mentioned that it's milled out of 6061 aluminum, which is fine.
    But I hope the boss on the back is an added component.
    If it's milled from billet, that would waste a huge amount of material.

    Only a life-long experienced machinist would notice that, Leigh.

    And your CNC comment is spot on.
