Sunday I ordered a few parts for a transit level I have, only because everyone else online said the parts were discontinued and they claim to have them. The first thing they did was charge it to my credit card and then they sent me an email saying they were out of stock and might take a week or two to get the parts before they could ship. Sounds fishy to me. Like to know if anyone knows of this company.

I had figured out how I could fabricate the parts but I really hated to do the job. These tripods were built with a plastic part shown in the picture. Just because of age the parts just crumbled away making the legs loose. To make the part I would have to take two 3/4" copper unions to make the slide and then cut some flat pieces of copper to lay over the outside front and back and solder it. In the end it probably would be better parts but this outfit supposedly had these three parts for 37 bucks including shipping.
