I am looking for a Tripod Head on the cheap that I can mount to a wheeled dolly platform ( plywood ). I am only finding what appears to be replacement heads for tripods. I am guessing they would mount to a machined base.
I have searched on Ebay, Google, BHphoto etc for "flat mount tripod heads"
with no luck.. any help would be appreciated. I have seen heads that have a flat and stable base before, but I have yet to find one for sale.
I guess if all that is available is the replacement types, can anyone suggest one that they have adapted w/ success ?
I am looking to build a dolly setup similar to the one pictured below.

A Bogen or Gitzo head will come with a flat bottom with a 3/8x16 threaded hole in the center. For a small DV camcorder a Bogen (aka Manfrotto) 501 head is a little over $100.
