  • Seco provides a good tripod adapter for data collectors. I have mine that I can attach to the tripod head. It rotates 360 degrees. :)

  • My uncle and I made one out of a chunk of alum for his 48GX that hangs right off one of the strap loops for the tripod. He still uses it 10 years later with his recon.. He did get a can of flat black paint for it along the way at some point.. Makes it look powder coated. :D I think the alum was about 5 bucks at Menards.

  • I've got that same data collector! I had an instrument person that would just let it bounce on the cord when they walked away from the machine. I used some tin snips and sheet metal to fashion a clip (SDR 33 style, if your familiar with how that collector clipped on). There are two holes on the back I used to attach it.
    These are tough times! I have got wooden home made tool boxes. Better than anything they sell at Home Despot!

    Being frugal in the current economy has become a necessity rather than a hobby.  Do you have some simple "plans" for the wooden data collector mount?

  • I made the box for the data collector myself...bet you couldn't tell...I'm pretty frugal :-)

  • I like how the data collector is attached to the tripod!
  •  much imagination.  hehhehehe

  • Now that is funny.

    Is it a manhole?  Very ornate manhole?
