tripod hacked

Charles returned my tripod this evening with Manfrotto eye bolt attached. He ran into snags though. When he drilled the metal of the base, all seemed fine. But when he started tapping it, he found the metal crumbled and disintegrating. It was not going to work, a traditional tap. So he acquired some "liquid metal" glue bonding guck and used it to secure the eyelet. He heated it to improve the curing effect. It is rock solid!

I owe him.
