Default Well sorry about...

Well sorry about that... Not sure if I had any pull in it or not but Dave always took care of forum members... They get a lot of positive praise... So I usually make a mention of my screen name on big ticket items... I have really not had anything bad come from Sarco yet... I even picked up one of there 1917A1 flash hiders... I still want to pick up the Beer can version to go with the watercooled but I hear they get loaded up with debris...

I wasn't complaining, sarco has always taken care of me in the past I've had some wrong things or damaged and there customer support is AAA+++. My cradle sides were bent up a little and had some torched spots, nothing that a little welding & hammering couldn't fix.
Yours looks to be in real nice shape. There was a guy on e-bay that had the T&E brand new in cosmo for around $125 shipped. It was form somewhere in Europe.

One of mine is bent a bit... and does have a few torch touches on it but agree... I think I got a nice one... I saw the T&E's but not sure it it can be seized in transport... I know some of this stuff they have to pull permits before they ship it back on over the pond...

I think you are talking about the 2 tighteners for the azimuth ring?
Here is a link I found
http://web.archive.org/web/200601061...1917tripod.htm I hope this helps PM me if you need an azimuth ring I can point you in the right direction
