Re: New Mud Pan Design

I tried editing my comment but jeez the site has really gone down hill I don't think you can even edit posts anymore. Here's my edited post. Anyway the take away Is we used a brand called steadicam to give him a 'third arm's and it was professional camera equipment so it wasn't cheap but it worked for him until his wrist healed.

A buddy I used to work with when we were just starting out called me and told me he had broke his wrist after falling from his stilts. He was a bit bummed out but he's a drywall contractor with employees so it wasn't too bad financially.

We brain stormed and we ended up buying a camera harness third arm stabilizer. The kind you wear a big body vest and hold a metal arm thing and just bought whatever hardware we needed to and put a mud pan on there. It was awkward but his wrist healed great and he went back to normal afterwards.

I think the brand was steadicam but it was kind of expensive since it was professional camera equipment.

Re: New Mud Pan Design

Its unique! You never know where these ideas can lead.

Most likely needs tweaking, but I'd give it a shot!
