Hi , is there any chance to get a manual for the vinten 556 pedestal .... i need one for oxigen rechargement instructions ... please help ;-) thanks kurt

Try this link it is the closest i have found for the vinten 556 so far.

On a side note on that vinten pedestal you should use nitrogen gas on (vapor in air can rust inside parts).
We get a local commercial refridgeration and A/C service company to come and fill our up. it can take a bit of time to get a fitting that will work (we mod us to be a commen one they use) but i understand this part for the newer pedestals could work on the old models.

I bought a used camera tripod that does not fit my camera

Your tripod is a K-Mart brand item and it will fit any camera but it's clearly missing the quick-release foot which most tripods have these days. This part screws to the bottom of the camera and enables the camera to be quickly attached and removed from the tripod.

Unfortunately there is no standard foot shared between manufacturers and most tripod manufacturers don't even have a standard design foot which fits all models in their range.

You can still order a replacement foot from:-

But at US$18.99 it may be cheaper to buy a new tripod!

I hope that you appreciate the time which I've taken to research and answer your question and ask only that you return the favour by rating my answer.

Did you grab the hand screw on the bottom of the head? Loosen it and the head will swivel to level.
