  1. Re: Accessory feet for Manfrotto 3221 tripod

    Look at B&H Photo. They have all types of Manfrotto/Bogen spiked feet which screw down to rubber pads. If I'm not mistaken, the lower leg diameter of the 3221's is the same as the 055. Call them. ...

    When cutting metal, I always keep the hole saw lubricated with machine oil I've never had a warp. My main concern here was whether the 2" or 50mm hole saw would be correct.

    If you sue in small claims court in another state, you're generally required to appear as the plaintiff. If the respondent appears and you don't, it's likely that the case would be dismissed.

    Nikons are fine LF lenses, and your budget, at the top end especially will fetch a decent lens. Don't forget, though, add a lens board drilled to the proper opening.
