    Don – I found the Peak Design you tube video a little misleading. Right at the beginning the presenter opens up an $80.00 fixit tool kit. Bad start. When all one needs is one small allen wrench. After he takes the head apart and does whatever (He never tells you exactly what he found. He reassembles the head and tells us it’s better but sort of implied not good as new. It leaves me with the feeling of “what did he do?”. I just purchased one of the peak design tripods. Now I’m afraid I have something that needs to be treated like it’s some sort of delicate instrument. I’m not afraid to take stuff apart and I actually have the tool kit shown in the video BUT at 74 years old I’ve done it my self too many times to find much satisfaction in it. I might add that I have opined at times people should have a license to buy a screwdriver or any tool more complicated. I have seen too many damaged screw heads, stripped threads and otherwise damaged items caused by ham fisted do-it yourselfers. (I’ll kick the soap box back under the desk now.)

    I did order your new Macro Photography book back on May 10 – How are you doing on shipping?

    All the best – Rich Ball
