The first DIY foot that I posted here was a temporary fix until the Nikon 1 TR-N1oo Tripod Mount arrived. If you do not need a foot the Desmond DS-1 BiDirectional Acra-Type Plate from B&H for $13.95 works just great. I wanted a foot that gave me clearance to operate the zoom ring when mounted on my Jobu Jr 3 Gimbal Head. I found a used Sunwayfoto LF-C2 Lens Mounting/Replacement Foot at OEC Camera Accessories for $19.50. Here they are and how the foot was made:
