Quick photo tip: hooking an iPhone to a tripod with jig parts

For myself, this is the dilemma: I have no internet in the shop, so if I blog, it's either at home, downloading pictures from the phone or camera, or I blog directly via the phone. Sometimes it helps to be able to hold the camera steady to get a decent shot of a detail, or take an HDR shot, but the phone has no way to connect to a tripod. So, I swapped out the mounting screw in the tripod for a long T-track bolt, with a production stop on one end, and a scrap of MDF to hold the other side of the makeshift clamp.
