Everything works fine, the leg adjustment knobs are a bit tight, perhaps need cleaning/oil? The quick release is the round top part with a tripod 1/4 thread, and is locked on the head with the small lever. The pan/tilt lever has a slight bend in it, but it works fine. Minimum size is 35" high, and maximum extension is 57". A great piece of history and makes a great spotting scope tripod too.
Some have made lamps from these as well. This piece shows very well! I do my best to completely and accurately describe each item and provide high quality images for your inspection.
