how well would 6ft-10ft of PVC Schedule 40 Pipes ...

how well would 6ft-10ft of PVC Schedule 40 Pipes hold up?
Asked by: danny
That depends on how much weight you are putting on the Pipes and how you intend to use them. If you plan to lay your dolly track on the floor for instance 6-10 feet probably isn't going to be a problem, however, if you plan to elevate the dolly then 6-10 feet will become very problematic. PVC Pipes are known to flex and break therefore you'd have to be extremely cautious about how and where you apply your supports. In addition to that, the heavier the payload the more cautious you have to be about how and where the supports are located. It is safest to use metal tracks if available at that distance.

Has anybody found a way to use a 100mm bowl adapter on a tripod instead of stands with the original track ends?
Asked by: Anonymous
We see what you are trying to do. No manufacturer, however, has made such adapters. You can DIY and take 3/9 threaded rod, two pieces of bar stock, drill straight holes, bolt the rod and bars to the 100mm bowl. Then add this Manfrotto 186 Female Threaded 3/8 to Male 5/8 Stud Adapter - 50mm Long B&H # MA186. That is the type of solution I have seen a good grip come up with a million times. However, this is something done on set when you have to get the shot. It is not something B&H can be responsible for. Therefore, in the interests of your long time welfare, we highly recommend spending the money and getting the proper stands. You will see this is much better for you since you will be able to go instantly between your Dana Dolly and your tripod. You will save your back and a lot of time on set. And time is something you never have enough of on set.

Will a manfrotto 501 fluid head fit on here?
Asked by: sophano v.
The Manfrotto 501HDV head has a 3/8 -16 thread. This system uses 75mm, 100mm and 150mm Ball Base Heads. You could however use a 501HDV on it, you'd just need 75mm ball adapter like B&H # MA520BSH.

If I get pipe at the local hardware store am I looking for steel? Galvanized? Does it matter?
Asked by: Jim G.
While Dana Dolly always recommends schedule 80 aluminum, you can sometimes find schedule 40, and it really depends on the length of the track and the weight of the camera. I have used EMT pipe with a RED Dragon on an O'Connor 50 head with good results as long as we kept the length down to about 6'. Longer and heavier will translate to sagging. Some big box places like Home Depot sell galvanized, which is much heavier and would probably work up to 10'

will the ends fit over an avenger c stand 5/8 baby pin?
Asked by: Brenda
Yes it will fit any 750 or 1k stand.....are you using a baby c? Are you looking for height? 40 C stands will get very wobbly.. its best to use a beefy baby which has a 2k and 1k adapter and/or a stand with substance.
