The Track o' Rama gets ahead.

A pan/tilt head that is! I'm very excited to see the tracking rig get some more axes. (plural of axis!) The head came from an old tripod that was acting as a stand for a clamp-light in the animation lab.

The big obstacle: this screw holding the head onto the tripod was ridiculously hard to get off!

Fortunately, thanks to Mr. Moto in the woodshop, we got it to come off. Just needed a vice, a big screwdriver and a crescent wrench.

Then a little hole-drilling and the purchase of another screw...

VoilĂ !

Galt, as usual, is not impressed.

(He's just cranky because his replacement mouth is not smoothed over. There was a file folder to cover it up, as seen in last week's photo.)

Way cool, Mike. Proud of you! -Daddo
