Originally the "Tech Support Pits" were reports of the funniest tech support incidents, but over the years the
column gradually shifted to answering tech support questions put forward by the readers of the Dear
Webby Humor Letter.
This collection of computer and web advice was started partly because readers demanded an archive, and partly
because some questions were asked again and again. Each page has a different day's Tech Support Pits column.

Well, I did all that bar twisting, but I used some thick
plexiglass instead of aluminum. That should cause less
hassle in the airports. The problem is where do I find a
wing bolt ? In some hardware stores they knew what I
wanted, but none had any. What now ?
take a small cookie cutter that you won't miss, for example
a small star, lightly grease it on the inside, set it on some
stretch wrap and set the 1/4" bolt into the center of it,
Then mix some 2 component 5 minute epoxy, and pour
it into the cookie cutter. After about 10 minutes, pull the
cookie cutter off and your bolt will have a fancy star
shaped knob, just perfect for tightening the bolt to hold
the camera securely. Fluorescent yellow or orange spray
paint will make it easy to find it in your camera bag.
