    My 8x10 is only 12.7 pounds so Linhof "Expert"Twin Shank tripod should support it without problem if it's rated for 22 pounds

    The thread is from 2011. Maybe you can track down an old image with way back machine?

    Thanks for suggestion, unfortunately it didn't work out... When title "I like my Linhof Twin Shank tripod
    " inserted in Google search it gives the result of the picture but I'm not sure that's the right one.

    Russ, I don't see what advantages you will gain from modifying the tripod, especially if you are using it with an 8x10 camera. As is, this is a very stable and capable tripod. It is not terribly heavy, although a bit bulky. What do you hope to gain with the modification that Philip did?

    They say: "A picture is worth a thousand words";-) It was just a matter of interest for me. Getting soon my twin shank, so gathering some information.

    I've been using one (or a previous version thereof???) since 1970. Still love it.

    The only "problem" I've had is that the plastic liner in the part that encircles the center column housing has dried up and fallen out. No big deal.
