This is a video describing how to build a spider trax like dolly. I have seen postings on Cheesycam.com and was interested in making my own. I thought I would share this with all of you. Good Luck

This is a how to video on building your own camera rig handles. This grip are similar to what you may get with the RedRockMicro grips. They are not at RedRockMicro standards because they are a DIY project, but if you are looking for really inexpensive handle grips. These would be a great alternative.
2 1/2" 4" long galvanized pipe $1.33 each
2 bike handle grips $10.00 for the pair
Epoxy - $4.81
15mm rails - I had extra laying around.
File - you should have one in your tool kit
You will need some 90 clamps to connect this to your rig. I should be doing a review on these clamps very soon. Testing out some of the options.
Thanks for watching!
All filming/editing/voice-over work is preformed by myself .
