Neil: I am posting a pic of the subject clamp. As a reminder to you, you asked me to post a pic of this either late last year or early this year. I was on Nikonians asking about ball heads and mentioned this. I intended to join as a paid member but did not get around to becomming Silver until recently.

The instructor in the Nikon School, in 1976, showed his version and recommended we fix one of these. I had a friend braze the 1/4 inch bolts to the visegrip pliers. I bought a Rowi ball head from a local camera shop. It was the only ball head they had. At the time, ball heads had not come into common use and there weren't many available. However, this ball head is very stable and locks down solid. I have used this setup a lot over the years shooting film with my Nikon F2. I also carry a 3 by 3 inch piece of scrap leather to use as a pad for the jaws when I want to attach the rig to something the jaws may damage. In fact, I will continue to use it on occasion with my D7000.
