Nrs river counter.

Can somebody take some up close photos of the place where the legs meet the top? I'm looking to build one for my personal use. Thanks

I don't own one, but was thinking about trying to make one too. This is the best picture I have, and its not great, but maybe it will get you started.

I don't think you should need much of a closeup, the legs are just welded to larger diameter tubing slipped over smaller tubing. They are wide enough so that the bends of the frame keep the leg pivots roughly centered on the end. The existing pic should illustrate that pretty well.

One thing that drives me nuts about these tables, and many other river tables I've used, is the nylon webbing that keeps the legs from folding all the way open. It stretches, and allows the table to be pretty wobbly.

I have a table that has a rigid pipe that doesn't have any give when the legs are open. I'll be able to get a pic on Saturday if you're still wanting it then.

Right. But doesn't the adjustability help level the table? Yeah, it does. I'll take the trade off for some camps. It's never been an issue with too much wobbly ever for me when I sink the legs down a bit and tighten the straps. Fwiw.

Does it count as river gear if a cam strap is no longer required?
