Good stuff, let me know how you go. I got my washers from my local hardware store. I was originally looking for rubber washers though but couldn't find one. maybe i find a thin layer to glue on the metal washers

Bear in mind that with 3 washers, the markisn head doesn't compleletly touch the top of the tripod, until i tighten up the piece below the head (as if i was tightening up the centre column). Dont worry, this is how it also works if using the bundled gitzo head.

If i had used 4 washers then i don't need to use the piece below the head to tighten it up, but instead just tighten it up by screwing the head onto the hook/tube

I actually prefer 3 washers, just so i know the head and hook/tube is completely connected and then do the final tightening using the tightening piece below the head
