Pintle lock, pintle lock release, pintle
lock housing and springs. The lock &
release have been "virtually" separated
so you can see the individual parts.

Pintle lock & pintle lock
release are pinned together.

THE LEGS

An important thing to attend to is the degree of slant on the leg pad relative to the upper mounting lug. Probably best to build the tripod without the pads, then setup the assembled unit and trace the level line using the flat surface as a guide. I can tell you that the degree of slant appears to be about 13-14 degrees off of vertical, but a small error would be apparent in the finished product.
