I wasnt really sure where to put this question, but does anyone know of anywhere I can buy 'ball and socket' joints?
Im not sure they even exist as such. But Im hoping to find something like a plastic or aluminium sphere with a screwable arm coming out of it. The sphere sits within a spherical casing (which can be screwed to a flat surface), allowing you to position the arm it so it points at any angle.
I tried my DIY shop but he was a bit clueless,suggesting I used a bulky metal huge kitchen cupboard hinge :D I also tried a lighting shop, and they understood what I meant (kinda similar to the way spotlights can be pointed anywhere), but weren't really sure where to source them from.
Im sure many camera tripods have a similar sort of socket, but so far no joy
Any ideas please?
