TEP1 handle in hand - backorders shipping today
If you have reviewed my order page, this is the only handle I suggest. I do provide the longer TEP 2 and do not recommend the recently re-designed, now smaller and bullet shaped version of the formerly squared TEP4.
[The even smaller grip area of the TEP3 handle stopped back in the day of the Uniphot/Albu Tiltall.]
Also - as earlier blog post - Leitz and Marchioni Tiltalls may need a spacing sleeve (Home Depot or Lowes) to effectively lengthen the present iteration of the TEP1 - that is, if the 1/4-20 bolt is extending from the cover sleeve, you need a spacer. Subsequent iterations - Uniphot, StarD, Omicron and present KingHome, do not need to be "lengthened".
If you want to go with the original handles, then put up a search on eBay and watch for a good price on an entire Tiltall to then blend with yours - mixing the best of the two into one. Stick with our iteration. Handles are interchangeable, but blending feet and legs go best with same manufacturer.
As you have probably learned that all four of the original Tiltall handles were interchangeable, then you follow that the single TEP1 - my sole offering - can be used at all four positions.
