    here in the uk I am finding that roller blade wheels and inserts are quite expensive. Do you think it would be possible to use skate board wheels as an alternative. Also UK does not have the blank inserts (sigh) only stop ends. UK is an expensive place to live. another sigh. BTW keep up the great video works

    I finally made one, however here in the UK and maybe other parts of Europe, you cant get all the pieces you suggest, you cant get reducers or end caps such as you mention. So had to make my own. I also found that some of the joints were much loser than I would have liked so had to apply a band of glue to give some resistance. Also I found my Canon HF21 was kinda heavy and kept falling so had to glue the joint in the end. But its great now and still small enough to go places.

    Great dolly! I built my own based on your tutorial and it works fantastic. You need a very smooth surface to run it on to avoid camera shakes. I have a piece of kitchen counter on a piece of plywood that acts as my table. Works with my T2i and my smaller HF M31 just fine. Thanks for the video!

    I don't recommend adding height to this dolly, as you will add wobble as well. If you need it higher raise the surface the dolly is riding on.

    you can build three of these with out the head of the tripod. Then attach them together by measuring your tripod, put your tripod feet in the holes at the top of each table dolly, now you have a "Track Free Tripod Dolly". Try it on the show, Scott!

    Yard sales or thrift stores. Wheel and bearing quality is an issue, but if you get a pair of skates you can usually cobble four decent wheels from the eight.

    I made this today, but with a slight alteration. Instead of using bolts and nuts to hold the rollerblade wheels on, I used the original bushing/bolts that held the wheels onto the rollerblades. They were a bit too long, so I simply put a few washers on the bolt, inside the PVC end cap and it worked like a charm. T'his was quick and easy and works great. Thanks a lot!!

    Okay so.
    If you want to make this for DSLR cameras all you gotta do is use T joints at the ends and put couplers in the middle and make 2 of the top pieces. After that get a metal plate and drill it to the top and use a 1/4-20 screw and bam you have a camera plate that'll work with a DSLR
