You will need:
- 2 PVC plates
- 1 metal plate ca. 1,5 mm thick
- Counter-sunk screws M4 x 10
- ¼ inch screws (tripod-screw thread)
- ¼ inch thread screwdriver
- 8 disc magnets S-10-05-N
What's special is that I use the magnets for a form fit that is sustained with the magnetic force, which means the cube magnets sink halfway into the other plate and ensure an exact alignment that can't shift or turn. Hence, you can remove the camera and later place it at the exact same angle as before.
Also, the bottom part has parallel front and back edges, so you can lock it in a back vice for instance.
