Very solid video style pan/tilt head

Need an old video type pan/tilt head for use specifically with macro rig. Due to the Macro Slider, k20d, lens, extensions and Pentax AF160 ringlight, the cheap ones that we all inherit tend to sag too much due to the front heavy rig, especially when the slider is cranked all the way forward. An old head is fine, scratched is fine, just likely needs to have lots of steel instead of plastic. When stacking and making focus or slider adjustments it needs to stay in postion from the very slightest change in weight distribution. I KNOW there must be closets full of these things out there, usually too cheap to try and sell but I need one, a solid one, and see no need to buy a spiffy new one unless this Wanted Ad fails.
