pliers won't crush the column after wrapping with cloth? I have been thinking about using pliers but afraid I will crush the column. But cloth has no grip on the smooth smooth tube, wondering if the pliers will grip or not after being cushioned by the cloth.
Velbon Carmange 640, the centre split column. Haha I think I manage to turn the bottom long column too tight. I manage to detach it before, think when I screw back I screw it back on too tightly or something.
