My beloved Cube took a bit of a ding recently, resulting in one end of the clamp becoming misshapen. It can still be used as long as the plate does not need to extend fully to both ends of the clamp. Actually fine in ordinary use, but no good for attaching my pano or long lens components. So it will need to be rectified.
It strikes me that this may be an opportunity in disguise. I have the Arca Swiss clamp, which I have learned to accept but have never liked. Being a pretty recent Cube, it seems to be attached with adhesive and hence not readily replaced. However, now that I have to face up to repair or perhaps even a new clamp, maybe this is the time to think about finding a way to fit a clamp that I like better.
I am not someone with a practical turn of mind, so the solutions I have read here involving heating the adhesive up do not appeal to me (at least not if I have to do it myself). So, bearing in mind that I live in Sydney (Australia), just wondered if anyone has any suggestions for how to get the clamp removed and replaced. Any companies or local places who could undertake such work?
All suggestions welcome - as long as you don't try and talk me into doing a challenging repair/mod myself, because I just lack the skills/inclination in that department ;-)
