I have two Hollywood tripods, one is an original made in the USA and the other is a Taiwan type. Both are missing parts, but the Taiwan model is only missing the crank for the center elevation. That's no big deal, since I can adjust it by hand and lock it down.

The original needs a foot and it looks like I'm going to have to try to make one. I just can't see paying $14.95 for one that might fit.

Every time I go out to do some reloading, that tripod mocks me, so one of these days...

Good luck with making a foot. I tried to google Hollywood tripods, but I didn't really find any specific information on them. Is the Hollywood Tripod one of the more expensive ones?

Here's a picture of three of the tripods I have and only one has a "foot". The black one is the one I normally use, a Taiwan Hollywood. The next one is a USA Hollywood Master FT "Fluid Torque" and the last one is a Chinese Vivitar VPT-360.
