  6. Re: Szabad 8x10: Does anyone know what these things are for?

    The AWB was rather convenient, it came in a pouch with tools and extra parts. It has held up well, I've had mine for years.
    Unfortunately, it's no longer available.

    AWB sold a version called the wind stabilizer.
    Weston had one made for his Century Universal.

    Wow, you've gone from iPhone 5 or some other number to an even more irrelevant Ferrari.
