I wanted to use my Logitech QuickCam Messenger for recording how-to movies at the modelling workbench. However, I was surprised to discover that the Logitech QuickCam Messenger, nor my Logitech QuickCam Communicate STX, webcams could be mounted on a camera tripod.

On closer examination of the QuickCam Messenger, I could see how to disassemble the base. Once disassembled I discovered that there was enough room for a 1/4"-20 nut.

Here is how I modified the QuickCam Messenger so I can mount it on a tripod.

Tools and Materials

To modify the webcam, only very basic tools and materials are required:

1. Logitech QuickCam Messenger or another webcam with a suitable base
2.1/16", 1/8", and 1/4" drill bits
3.1/4"-20 hex nut
4.Micro screwdriver
