Notched Gears: Arca Swiss C1 Cube Geared Tripod Head

Well, I did it again about 18 months after the last time. The one weakness of the Arca Swiss Cube (I hardly use any other tripod head) is that if it falls over and takes a hard knock, the brass geared teeth will notch.

As before, Robert Watkins at Precision Camera Works repaired it, and it’s smooth as butter again.

Note: the latest Cube model won’t take my preferred clamp as shown because the knob won’t clear a knob on the Cube. I do not like the Arca Swiss clamps; one can still mount a Really Right Stuff lever release clamp on the latest Cube model, but have Precision Camera Works do it, because the stock Cube has been loctited on solidly.
