HEQ5 Tripod Leg Extension Screw Jammed - Help

Recommended Posts

If your going to replace the winged bolts, take a look on Amazon. They seem to supply a good selection. Reasonable prices too.

I recently replaced the three M4 grub screws that adjust the polar finder on a Meade LXD55 GEM, makes adjustment much easier.

Came to just under £8 including postage.

Might still be worth tapping the threads out on the leg to effectively clean the threads up,  (easy job)  the new winged bolt should then be a nice fit.
