After a little clear out I found an old aluminium tripod that was busted.... soooo I converted it to a folding shaft for my X-Terra... I also added a Bluetooth transmitter so I now have wireless earphones :-)

Yes, you can't deny tripods are useful, and cheap, too. I have a few obtained from car boot sales for typically £1 each. The only potential problem is the last bit of the lower rod, which really should be non-metallic ( eg. plastic, fibreglass ) and some engineering is needed to sort out the clevis hardware.

Great use of something that was obviously retained for just such a project. At the time, the reasoning being - 'it may one day come in useful'. Well it did and that's a great example of thinking outside the box'. Nice job
A disservice is no service at all.
