Default Mounting new ball head on DG H4 tripod

The 1/2-inch stud you've exposed is grooved but not threaded, so you will have to use a tap and dye set or ask a machinist to chase a 3/8x16 thread on its end so you can mount an alternative head. If you go this route, we would suggest the David & Sanford FM18 head rather than the BHQ11 ball head, but the choice is yours. Regrettably we do not have any alternative heads available that fit this 30+ year old tripod directly. Best of luck and good shooting! Jason Schneider
