Tiltall and the amazing Anson Nordby
Dear Mr. Regester, Thank you
for your response to my inquiry about obtaining a new leg for my Tiltall
tripod. I am sending the entire tripod assembly to you for correct
parts. In addition to the leg assembly, it will require a number of
additional parts to restore the tripod to be complete as it was when new.
Let me tell
you briefly what I am up to. I have so far collected three of the
great older model Tiltalls. I place them with time lapse cameras in
the Death Valley area of California (well camouflaged) for one to three
days to catch the moving shadows and clouds in a time lapse movie.
My goal is to have five complete tripod/camera systems. This
tripod will be number four. Thank you for your help. If in
addition to the parts for this tripod, you have another complete tripod
for sale (one of the good ones with the brass jam fittings on the legs) I
would love to buy it. PS: I was out in the Owens Valley and the Alabama Hills the first part of this past
week. I have attached some tripod photos for your blog. Best Regards, Anson Nordby
