PLEASE!
Since I have not actually built an M2 tripod from these drawings, I have not had the chance to catch mistakes. Some have been reported to me, however. If you doubt any of the dimensions, please let me know by E-mailing me. I will be happy to check a measurement for you and it may save someone else from finding out the hard way.
I have supplied dimensions in the form they were taken, with either a steel rule or a dial caliper,
so while some of the dimensions are expressed in inches, others are in hundredths.
