I think I will make a few more of these.

I recently watched YouTube member Mark Hensley of YourVideoTips create a cheap way to add a friction arm to your fluid head. So I went to the hardware store today and made one myself, and it works pretty good so far.

Watch Marks video below, he does a great job showing how it is done, and see my pictures below on the way I did mine today. I think I will make a few more of these.

I attached it to my extremely useful Manfrotto 561BHDV mono pod and my Friction or “Magic” Arm
