    Grapheic View II Triopd Head

    Tripod Head
    Part reference 2 - 5 p/n 29783 Pad Base.

    Pad starting to disintegrate, polymer aging/ hardening and crumbling away from cloth base.
    Is there a 'proper' replacement material available to replace the base pad?

    Side question, several easels bottom side pads are staring to gum up or similarly harden to rock.
    Is there a good foam pad replacement for easel bottoms?

    I've used thin rubber gasket material to make similar pads. Also, an even coating of rubber cement can be applied and let dry for a non-slip base.

    Thank you. Hoped to avoid the creative approach. If I find a non hardening non go to gooo recommendation I"ll post it.. Had hoped a fabric backed product similar to the original was in the collected wisdom. The adventure continues ( -:

    Sheet foam from a craft store for the easel backing and cork for the tripod head.

    Whatever you use should be thin so it is also stable.

    I used a mouse pad cut to fit my tripod head. Contact cemented the fabric side to the metal on the head. The thin (1/8") backing makes a nice non slip surface and is easily replaceable.
