    Linhof #3663 tripod head 1/4" screw needed

    After many years of lusting for a Linhof #3663 tripod head I finally found a used one that I could afford.
    Unfortunately it came with a 3/8" attaching screw, but all my cameras have the smaller 1/4" size. Does anyone know where I can get one?
    Thanks.

    It's a very nice screw in spite of getting screwed.

    Hey, $48.50 is dirt cheap. The U.S. Military would pay thousands of dollars for a screw like that!

    Bob, thanks for answering.
    Alan, I think that it IS the military price. :-)

    HP doesn't have it in stock -- they said it would have to be ordered from Europe.

    The standard tripod screw is 1/4"-20. Common as hens' eggs. Any DIY store stocks many different types and sizes.

    Buy one of suitable style and dimensions, and a thick 1/4" washer to go between it and the tripod head.

    It won't have the retaining ring, so you'll need to put it in a ziplock bag when no camera is attached,
    but you can buy lots of ziplock bags for $50.

    If you believe you can, or you believe you can't... you're right.

    If it were only that easy. It isn't!
