Re Minolta MS-2: Flash Stand you might want to add Sigma FS-11 flash stand which is bigger, better and has a metal tripod thread. It fits Minolta/Sony and is usually cheaper.

Is it possible to connect multiple flashes together (like in the OP) but to trigger the group wirelessly using the integral WL mode?
