What kind of solution do you guys use to get your table sideways for pan ups/downs? I tried last night using my pan head + ball head but there was way to much play/drift. I use a Kirk L bracket on my camera and would ideally hold the camera horizontal with a kirk quick release mounted onto the rotary table.

Man that sherline table must be a pain to mount sideways!

I made this bracket out of a piece of aluminum angle I found in the remnant pile at an industrial metal supply shop. I believe its 0.250" thick, but I never actually measured. Just wanted something that I knew would be plenty strong to hold the mumford. Just drilled a hole in the center of the 4"x4" section to attach to the tripod, and then drilled another hole in the 6"x4" section that centers the rotary table's baseplate over that section of angle.

I'm only able to use this on the tripod head because I replaced the original 3/8" 16 (1.5" long) bolt with a 2" long bolt... otherwise the plate is too thick to mount directly to a tripod and secure with a nut. But, if you were to tap the hole for 3/8" 16, you could conceivably thread the bracket on your tripod.
