    Have a few more bits to machine but the head is more or less together. It seems like it should provide a very stable base for the camera but we'll see how it holds up once I mount the big bastard. Weight is a touch over 3lbs which I think is reasonable given the size.

    Having perhaps three tripod screw holes in a line from front to back in the top plate enables one to keep the camera better centered over the tripod when tilting up and down.

    Well it seems to hold the big bastard. Still have a couple of things to finish but it's definitely a huge improvement over my old head.
