Thank you Mr. Lapides! The adapter for the AP hardwood

tripod, to allow the mounting of a Tegul head, is beautifully made.



Richard got it to me very quickly and in fine shape. Lots of

good packing. Now our weather guy is predicting a 30% chance

of rain. Oh well. ;-)



The Lapides adapter is very, very nice.



All the best,

Rich
