Trim Lever Prototype based on Proline

Can't find it?...Gotta make it. Might make a small run of these guys. Based on a Proline lever. Will have cut out in inside if produced.

Aluminum trim lever & mount. Hand cut to try out before cutting.

Serial Number 001 Ready to Go!

The semi-custom first production unit is ready to leave home. This baby features the Ver 2 BB system and the client requested 5k pots, sealed/ceramic bb, 3/16" shaft (for compatibility with other gimbals) and a grip. I used a very tacky rubber intended as track bicycle grips. 

Now on to the next units!!!

While waiting for a couple parts...I built my MS2K encoder!

Got this beastie built and tested. And it works like a hot Dang! I'll try to post a video in the near future.

Ooh la la.

No Antonio, you're too sexy!!

Now it's just gratuitous!!!

Removable base plate for encoder (is held in place with 2 sided hook & loop).

Grommets behind bolts for added gentleness.

In place with foam sandwich. It can now travel from transmitter to transmitter.
