UPDATE 25 March 2013. Rob says "If u need someone to give u all the European Sizes (Meters, Cm and Mm) just email me! Rob_de_clercq@hotmail.com". NICE!! :)

Build this OliviaTech DIY jib for about $40! I give all the details, dimensions, hardware, test shots and comments. And yeah, it's awesome! Read the description...there's a lot of info here!

UPDATE: 4 JUNE 2013:
Someone in Australia said you can get the nylon bushings by going to ebay.com.au and typing "NYLON Plastic Shoulder Washers Packs 10. Thanks!

UPDATE 6 MAY 2013:
Thanks to a heads up from codythegreat428, the nylon flange bushings are back in stock here: http://tinyurl.com/bmqc8c4

UPDATE 01/30/2013
The ones below are out of stock on Amazon. The only thing I can find is this:
1/4 x 1/2 Nylon Flange Bearing (25 pieces). They're TOO long, but i THINK(!) you could cut them shorter. Haven't tried it at all, so you're on your own if you try this. But for $6, not a real bad deal. Here's the link: http://www.amazon.com/Nylon-Flange-Be...

About this video:

I ran across this jib from OliviaTech.com and decided to build and test it. After figuring out all the exact dimensions and hardware, I decided to share it for all and make a DIY video. OMG!!! You guys who do DIY videos...Master Kudos! these take a LONG time to put together!

I include a full explanation of everything, all hardware needed, all aluminum parts needed, how to build it, the links to OliviaTech, and even some awesome test shots!
