Faro Focus + Gitzo + Tribrach Question

Post by Chrono9084 »

All,

We recently purchased a Faro Focus S70 which came with a Gitzo Mountaineer tripod and the quick release attachment.

I purchased the following Tribrach: https://www.surveying.com/product/optic ... ach-black/

This only accepts a 5/8" thread and the Gitzo has a 3/8" thread.

Does anyone know what options I have in terms of adapters to make this work?

Does anyone know if there is a better option of tribrach that possibly accepts a 3/8"?

Scrub the thread-locker off with warm soapy water, and then you will have a 3/8-16 to 5/8-11 thread-adapter :) Been using these for many years now.
