But this tripod was utterly & completely destroyed by UPS in shipment!
"What has Brown done for you today?" is the thought which will always come to mind for me, especially since being without that "elevator" capability is quite a hit!
The boxed product which is larger than the typical pallet size of 40" to 48" inches, was apparently laying flat on a pallet while "over-hanging" the pallet sides in a UPS shipping warehouse somewhere. Some IDIOT apparently pushed an entire row of pallets with the tripod over-hanging the pallet in the middle of the row TOTALLY crushing it big-time! The shipping container was destroyed, the end was completely torn off with the broken tripod hanging out of it! The UPS driver brought it around to my back door, threw it on the ground, rang the door bell, and took off! "What has Brown done for you today?"
One of the broken components was the crank, it looks like metal but actually is some kind of reddish colored resin material. It made me think I'd crank the thing/and slide it around when collapsed with caution.
I had to return the tripod to Johnson, they were the greatest, but couldn't replace it without shipping it via a UPS shipment. They said they had no "will-call" at their warehouse near Milwaukee (I was going to drive it), and I couldn't order it from a Johnson Distributor either, which seemed a little weird.
Anyway, enjoy yours-they must be the greatest!
*** UPDATE ***
Finally did get one of these (just couldn't resist).....I rarely use it but when I do it REALLY is a convenience.
I'm satisfied with the "accuracy" when extended upwards, its fairly rigid and doesn't "wobble" when elevated.
(Get it, you'll like it!)
1) The "head" of this tripod (where one would mount things, on top of the large shaft) has two problems. First, it is filled with a gear mechanism designed to allow one to turn a knob to screw down one's level. The knob on mine did not just spin, but wobbled all over, so I took the head apart to see if I could fix it. No luck there, as the hole the knob shaft was in was extremely oval, not round. Further, inside the cavity were 5 of the cheapest pot-metal gears I've ever seen. Two of them are attached to shafts with keyways so wide that the gear could spin back and forth 20 degrees with no motion of the shaft, so with two gears, about 40 degrees of slop there. All of the gears are on shafts that are mounted into holes in the head casting; the shaft holes are not true to one another, not the right diameter, and some are not even round! A very sloppy mechanism overall; I'd suggest just a fixed screw and spinning the device down onto it. No easy fixes for this by me. The second head problem is with the cylindrical base of the head that fits into a large aluminum sleeve mounted on the main vertical shaft. Though the head base was clearly machined to be circular and the right diameter, the casting was so bad that the machine tool only hit about 1/3 of the stub, so instead of fitting solidly and squarely into the aluminum sleeve, it rocks back and forth off-level. Yes, there are 4 tiny screws to keep it more-or-less steady in the sleeve, but properly built the screws would just hold it in the sleeve, not stabilize the head. Epoxy was the fix for that, though make sure the head is square with the shaft while the glue dries.
2) The shaft can be raised by either telescoping (one tube inside another, adjusted with the large knurled grip) or via the hand crank for fine adjustments; it has two problems. Though the shafts themselves are thick metal and sturdy, the inner shaft (with the head on it) is not mounted solidly inside the outer shaft, i.e. the only point of support is a plastic collet inside the large knurled nut. The result is that the inner shaft, with its O.D. being significantly smaller than the I.D. of the outer shaft, rocks back and forth inside the outer shaft, thus losing level. The collet clearly needs to be longer than a couple of inches to stop this. Problem two here has to do with the crank mechanism that is meant to raise and lower the outer shaft to "fine tune" the height. Well, with about 50 degrees of rotation in either direction before the gears engage the shaft positively and actually raise or lower it, fine tuning via the crank is totally out of the question. I'd guess that the same super-cheap pot-metal gears with sloppy keyways would be found inside that mechanism. These problems are design and build-quality flaws with no easy fixes by the purchaser.
3) The cast parts (yellow) are all generally very thin-walled and cheap compared to older tripods I've used; certainly not heavy duty, so be careful banging this thing around.
4) The "heavy duty" carrying strap is the cheapest, thinnest polypropylene nylon strap one can imagine, mounted with the cheapest hardware available. You'd get much better on a small backpack from the dollar store! Easily and cheaply fixed with better strap and hardware.
5) The legs are tubular aluminum, and are length-adjusted by tightening knobs at the bottom of each leg. Problem is, the wall thickness of the tubes is so thin that just tightening the knob actually crushes the tubes! I fixed that problem by putting 3/4" diameter by 1.5" long solid aluminum plugs inside the leg tubes where the nuts are.
6) The metal leg tips are fine, but the "rubber" tips included for use on floors that might be marred consist of about 1/2 inch of extremely thin-walled clear vinyl tubing stuck over the metal points; to be honest, it looked like packaging material, not part of the tripod. Not at all stable, and they fall off immediately. I fixed this by finding some proper rubber bumper feet with threaded shafts that matched the studs on the metal points, so they could be used to replace the metal points. Metric, unfortunately (8mm x 1.25mm).
Bottom line, while this tripod is OK for casual use, it really is far from "professional" quality. I'd suggest finding a used tripod from, say, pre-1980, when they were made in the US and the quality was much higher. Johnson should be ashamed! Either they don't care about quality, or they are ignorant of just how cheaply built this unit is; really, they need to have some competent design engineers review this item from top to bottom. I'm sure a good quality unit wouldn't cost very much more to make.
