I purchased two photo light stands, each has a 1/4 inch threaded stud on the top. I want to mount a metal plate, so that I can put a dual band or other gain antenna on top. The question is where can I find the adapter to go from the 1/4 inch stud, to the metal plate. I do not have a metal shop, so parts would be from a local box hardware store.
Thanks for any suggestions.

1/4-20 is a common thread size in photography. I remember a QST Hints and Kinks article from a long ways back about someone who made a mag-mount adapter for their photo tripod by using a metal junction box and using a wing nut over the stud. They didn't even have to drill a hole, it was already there
