DIY: How to fix thrift store tripods

Ever pick up a tripod from a thrift store that wasn’t quite perfect? I’ll show you how I fixed my second hand tripod, and how you may be able to fix yours.

Metal camera quick release system
1/4″ machine screw (length will depend on tripod head)
1/4″ lock washer
1/4″ fender washer (diameter will depend on tripod head)
“rubber padding” – taken from flash bracket (you can also use a neoprene fender washer if the tripod head will cover it)

Flat head screwdriver
Dremel rotary tool
