    Still want a better solution for my own created keyboard holder. This works but it's not ideal.
    The NLR v3 is hardly visible. But man I can recommend this 'gadget' together with VR to everyone.
    It was a real attack on my -meanwhile empty - wallet but worth every penny, dollar/euro cent.

    After realizing it's my 20th anniversary as virtual racer this year, I found it's the best opportunity for an overall facelift of my little Home Studio incl. new Rig and such....;)

    Apologies for responding a bit late. Had to do some races and family stuff.

    On the left side of the NLR stand there is a hole and the aluminium pole perfectly fits in that hole. Because I have a motion shaking rig I had to tighten this stick with some extra handfolded piece of metal. I attached the keyboard to a extra piece of a gearholder that was delivered together with the NLR stand and that holder attached with a bolt to my hightech keyboard pole ;)

    I still want a more professional heavy duty keyboard tray that you can pull towards you but that needs to be attached to something else then my rocking chair (so the official NLR accessoire is not an option, because that one you have to mount to your chair?)

    Some pics for what it is worth.
    This is my cheapest mod I ever made.

    Maybe an idea ? (That is if you have a wall nearby the rig) :D
    I used an old TV monitor folding arm/plate and converted it to a keyboard tray. It is attached to the wall. The folding arm is long enough to get the keyboard well within reach, and it is easy to get it out of the way if not needed.
    Sorry for the bad detail pics (all three of my devices to take pictures are low on battery and flash was disabled).

    You can see the wall mount bracket of the left of this picture.
    This was (is) a Vögel TV arm I had lying around from many years ago.
    I adapted the tray for the keyboard to fit and repositioned the swivel point.

    Thx @Fanapryde ! Indeed something like that. For some (strange?) reason I want to do this low budget, despite already have invested a couple of thousands of Euros in simgear....
    Vogels are some of the best wall mounts so new too expensive to buy a new one for this purpose. Vogels store in Eindhoven was almost my neighbor once we lived over there. haha memory lane.
    I understand if you have had it lying around it is a superb solution! PS very nice setup! DIY 80/20 is also on my whislist for the long long term.

    This could also be a solution when you don't have a wall near by: http://www.cjonline.nl/contents/nl/p30207_Monitor_Beugel_Draai-_en_Kantelbaar_10_-_32___6_kg.html

    Then this could be of possible interest for you ?

    [​IMG]

    Not one from Vogels I'm afraid... :p

    I bought it second hand (before my wife reminded we still had the Vogels TV stand).
    It's disassembled to save room, but you see how it is. If you'd be interested, send me a PM (not to clutter
    the topic too much)... If you are not, and somebody else is, go ahead... ;)

    My son wanted to buy a triple pedal set to his T150 so I sacrificed quite alot of my simracing time to design and 3D-print these pedals for him. The loadcell is connected to an amplifier from Leo Bodnar and then directly to the wheelbase. 10kg is not enough so we will probably try a 20kg loadcell.
    We really need to build a new rig for him since the old one made from leftover pieces is not solid enough for a loadcell brake pedal. The clutch is basically the same as the mod I made for my free mounted G25 pedals.

    ducman888, funny you mention that. I have been convinced to go forward and see what it will take to make a kit available. Please feel free to hold your breath! :)

    Should be one of those two 32:9 screens from Samsung (C49HG90 or C49J89).

    Ordered but not delivered yet, but these items will be added to my rig (really) ™️ soon. :D

    From SimRacingBay (Tomo): 20Nm Mige / Biss-C encoder
    https://www.simracingbay.com/

    [​IMG]
    Bodnar controller board and switches, rotary dials, knitter buttons.
    Aluminium housing. Front plates and shifter levers full carbon. Magnetic shifters. Connection via coiled USB cable/Lumberg connector.
    All printed text can be choosen (or left away), text, colors, layout, same goes for the printed button caps.

    Plus a wheel rim to go with it. I have chosen black leather/black stitches, 30 cm diameter.
    Was thinking about taking a suede wheel, but I don't really fancy wearing gloves all the time.

    Can't wait.... :):):)
