Any chance you might produce other designs? I just built a couple of wall versions. I CNC'd some .060 aluminum, 'broke' it slightly in a press brake and black matte powder coated them and attached to 3/4" Black walnut. I plan on mounting them soon. If people have the wall space these could be handy and made in different colors and wood types.

Prototype test

Post by jjmcclear » Fri Feb 15, 2019 3:32 pm

I dropped these prototypes off for powder coating, this morning. Should get them back early next week. I wanted to see how they did in the studio first, and shot this quick video. Once I get them back, I'll put together a demonstration video. I'll then be launching the Kickstarter campaign. :yay:

Yes, I have these two concepts that I'm working on, so far. Preference?

There's also an optional one, for the desk design as well...

Hmmm, probably not a huge market for something like that. Maybe I can offer a 3D print version, at some point.

Re: they came!

This first prototype run (in video below), turned out to be the wrong scale. I had a new set cut yesterday. Different manufacturer, much faster, and better quality. When we do the final product, they will be formed with a tool and die. So the bends will be sharper, and the center will be raised.

I was still in the parking lot when I shot this pic. lol :hihi:

Those are really looking great! The Ti-Fighter wing is all I see now :hihi:
Come to think of it; Tie Fighter would be a good name if not already in use;
the cable hanger fights tied up cables.

Even most eurorack folks might have a couple 1/4" cables for final outputs and possibly a few MIDI cables? And some mobile device headphone and charging cables etc might need a narrower slot then a standard eurorack cable? (not sure, haven't measured)

I vote for the design with the angle end slots as well. Count me in for one when you launch the kickstarter.

I'll consider that, thanks!

I'll be wrapping up product photography and video, this weekend. Hoping to launch the Kickstarter, next week. I'll be sure to post the link here, once it goes live.

Thanks for your support! It's very much appreciated!

nuts

Post by jjmcclear » Wed Feb 20, 2019 2:09 pm

I'm also considering having some nuts made for the hangers. Most mic stands only come with one nut, as a lock.
