    Sorry I was not clear but I am trying to remove the center tube that protrudes below.

    A facebook friend sent this that looks to be a screw thread... of course as Bob mentioned there is no certainty mine is the same...

    It can be a very tight fit even if you loosen this, with possible corrosion or somebody glued it in.

    I bought a new 3/8" version of the above from B&H some time ago. I have an older 1/4"

    The Heavy duty was made in the 50's with wood legs also as i have one. I believe it was spec for movie cameras

    I have Linhof catalogs somewhere, my library is not in order

    Linhof 90 mm c;lamps by TIN CAN COLLEGE, on Flickr
    They currently make both versions, aluminum and wood legl

    Nice that the double-wide heads can fit directly into the 90mm hole instead of requiring the cap...

    Anyone know, did other companies also make 90mm tripod heads or was it just a Linhof thing?

    I made my own 90 mm adapter for a Majestic head from off the shelf parts

    It is documented at least twice somewhere here

    A Majestic head is better than most Linhof heads

    The combo is very heavy duty

    All 3 of mine with that feature unscrew easily as they should, for various configurations

    Once removed it is a delicate bit, I store them carefully

    I remember that. I will need to do something similar for a very heavy camera with its own odd mount and a spotting scope...

    Looks like a very good bearing, perhaps for telescopes

    Bob may know

    The military also used that tripod, for something
