    my tripod is missing the camera attaching bolt or the hardware to attach the camera to the tripod.

    Can't find the screw that fits into the bolt that holds the camera to the tripod.

My son just snapped the leg off my Kalimar PE-8, and I would be happy to supply any parts you are missing free of charge. It's useless to me now. Get in touch at nixbox at gmail dot com

How to put a camera on it

If it's a quick release tripod you need to remove the quick release plate (Usually a release lever to the side of the top of the tripod) and then fasten the plate securely to the camera and then the plate to the tripod. Older non-quick-release tripods have a knurled screw located below the flat area where the camera is attached. If the screw is missing, get a relacement from your local hardware store - 1/4" -20. (Find a way to keep the new one from getting lost.)

I have a Kalimar tripod model PE-8, it is missing one of the the feet on the bottom of one leg. I can't release the leg without this part.

I have the same model, purchased from a pawn shop with a foot missing. My husband replaced it with a pencil eraser. He put shrink tubing material around the eraser until it was the right size to screw on to the thread. I hope this helps.

Attachment at base of camera - SLIK 88M

The standard tripod screw mount is 1/4"-20tpi. 1/4"-20 UNC will also work. You should be able to find such bolts at your local hardware store.
