    I added a small metal piece to the bottom with 2 1/4-20 threaded holes in it. There are now 2 mounting points for accessories, or as in this case, a tripod quick release.

      oh with screws going right into the aluminium ?

      yes that is right. So it is not very adjustable - but on the other hand, it is not going to move around or fall off either.

      I've had an idea for a more flexible mounting solution. How about having another plate like the camer mount, at the bottom. Then bolt together. If you file ridges in it so it effectively grips the aluminium. Maybe with some rubber too?

      Or - does it really need to be adjustable?

      I've just cut all my plastic up, and waiting for a friend to supply me with some 15mm tubing. Can't wait!

      I've had an even better idea. You could fix hose clips to the bottom of the mount plate. That way you can still slide the plate backwards and forwards, the simply tighten up once its where you need it.

      Now I just need to figure out how to attach them!

      6 months later... I used a dremel to cut slots in the mounting plate, then ran two hose clamps through and around each pipe for adjustable mounting! Mine looks like crap and is untested, or else I would share an image.
