Putting 2 Manfroto and Cullman camera tripods and 2 Smith-Victor Lights back into circulation with repair parts from eBay and HomeDepot

  1. The Library handed us back circulation of equipment that supports production classes in film studies since they could not maintain the equipment in good state of repair. We are having a hard time to do that, too,
    1. and regularly seem to lose – since we have no library, but only student staff, likely even more – vital parts (despite plenty of training and (feed:)checklists)
    2. which we cannot get replaced through approved university procurement channels.
  2. Enter the local HomeDepot, which has an entire aisle dedicated to screws, bolts, nuts and wing nuts,  and eBay, which provides reasonable search features if you specify your parts well. While we do not have part numbers, the first order attempt was delivered in short time and proved successful: Here are the broken lights (screws wing nuts has been replaced in the meantime): light2 stand brokenlight3 stand brokenlight3 stand broken (3)light3 stand broken (2)
  3. Here are the the fixed tripods
    1. (still in the surplus bin, but no need: back into circulation): CAM04294
    2. and their original parts, and replacement parts from eBay:
