Concerns about a Bolex Tripod
Hello, I was offered a Bolex tripod similar to the one pictured at a good price. The thing is, it is missing its top plate (the part that sits in the circular depression in the third picture).
The seller tells me that this plate is easily found online. I have looked cursorily but haven't found anything yet.
Is this a foolish purchase? Will I spend time and money looking/machining this top plate?
The tripod is in excellent condition otherwise.
