    Description
    One of life's little mysteries for me is the relatively low prices that Tiltall tripods bring on the used market. The new ones are Chinese, so maybe people think that the vintage ones are Chinese as well. They are not. They were made from bar stock and tubing in a machine shop in New Jersey and are similar to the Gitzo 3- series in stiffness and leg diameter. People even collect these things! More: http://tiltallsupport.blogspot.com/p/tiltall-support.html

    Anyway, I have a surplus of Tiltalls right now and, rather than get a pittance on FeeBay, I have decided to contribute to mu-43 by giving one away to the person who posts to this thread with the highest promised contribution to the site. Effectively, this is a charity auction. It will close four days after the date/time of this posting.

    This tripod is fully functional but not beautiful. The legs have some dings but extend easily, and one leg has an operation ID number engraved on it.

    Buyer to pay me (net of Paypal fees) only for my cost to ship the tripod. Figure 6 1/2# from zip code 55408 if you want to get a shipping cost estimate.

    LoRes--1060356.

    OK, new plan:

    Amin says that auctions are not permitted here, even charity auctions that benefit the site.

    So ... first post from a member who will donate $35 to mu-43.com gets the tripod.

    If something falls through I'd be up for the tripod!
