So throughout my journey in DIY eSk8 one thing I have all ways done is design and fabricate my own mounts. I have release all of the files for my previous versions for other to replicate. But now I am back with another, but this time (I think) its the only one piece caliber mount. Ill cut right to the pictures…
- The fit around the truck needs to be perfect. Other 2 piece solutions have room for error. Many versions accomplished the perfect fit.
- Because the mount is not adjustable the angle needs to be just right. I think I have found the happy median between being close to the deck and being far enough from the ground. This mount does not require risers, but they are recommended.
- How to secure the mount to keep it from moving. This mount uses one M6 bolt (threaded) to secure it. Lock-Tite is a must. I have considered adding a place for a set screw, but it can be easily added.
- Belt length and fit. The mount is designed for 44mm hole spacing, and perfectly fits a 265mm belt. There is also enough room for a 15mm belt!
Now for the 3d prints (My favorite part)
Would you guys be interested in a group buy for the mount? From what I am gathering it would be around $35 (Don’t hold me to it). I know there is a GB going on now and the aluminum piece is $15, so if the guy would be wiling to share the manufacturer I would be glad to contact them.
