Solid Industrial-Style DIY Tripod

This might be the best DIY tripod to, say, hike with, but if you need something that will survive a nearly anything, this bomb-proof tripod is for you.  Unlike some of the simpler mounts seen here, this contraption will take a decent amount of welding and assembly skill as outlined in CroBuilder’s excellent Instructables article.

It would seem that a DIY tripod build like this would be best suited for a DSLR or other large camera, but anything with a standard 1/4 – 20 mount would work quite nicely with this beast.  The chain on the bottom keeping the legs from splitting is an especially nice touch in my opinion.
