add Screw turning to the Gorillapod

This first post will inaugurate the new XYZ its not tea/ Photo category 🙂
Hopefully it will not show up in the RSS feed, if youre on the Tea Reviews category that is.

the Joby Gorillapod is a portable, small, flexible, useful, cute tripod.
… if you manage to screw it in your camera.

most of the time I dont have coins with me, so I then do not take the joby with me.

to be able to screw the tripod at anytime, there should be something to turn the screw at all times.

I tried 2 dimes taped with 1 layer of masking tape, but doesnt stick in for long.

So here is a solution which worked for me:

glue the 2 dimes with resin to the tripod.

(set the thing in an uneven position overnight… so the coins are mildly tilted to one side, but they are glued on very well, don’t feel any flex or cracking, so i think it will hold for a long time.)
