Question about Meade 884 Tripod
Getting parts or after sales service from Mead is next to impossible. Their parts come from backyard manufacturers in Mexico. The forums that discuss this are full of negative comments about Mead after sales and lack of parts. the attitude is ..Buy another full product.. as we don't supply spares..
Your only real option is to truy and repair the threads by tapping them back in place and using A FIBERGLASS mixture to re bury them in the plastic .
The second option is to trry one of the local australian distributors for a repair. But don;t hold your breath about them being any more able to get parts, but if you don't ask you don't get the answer.

Did you solve this problem or manage to find parts? I have the exact same problem and tried glueing but this did not work. I am in Wollongong AU so would be interested in knowing more.

Hi adturner. Get a tube of clear one minute epoxy. This wonderful adhesive will get you back up and running in no time. Just be prepared with a pair of pliers so that the moment you have applied the epoxy you can squeeze the brass insert back into the plastic body. J.

a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
New users get to try the service completely Free afterwhich it costs $6 per call and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).
