Motorizing my Console.

This forum is a wealth of ideas. I took a computer desk top and took a saw to it. I like the order the table took. Nice and Neat. The reading through this thread and others, I decided that I would like to motorize the component section.

I ordered some hinges. Which will be 19".

Then I order some rack rails. Which will be 14U.

Then some 1/2" plywood.

Then comes the measurements.

The goal is to get the motorize section to travel from a flat plane to a 45 degree angle. This will allow adjustments throughout the range.




Then the eventual goal to to dress the cosole so that it asthetically pleasing and functional.


There will be updates as the parts come in. The last thing will be the actuator. I will have to determine what the stroke will be in order to get the right length.


This will be a work in progress and something that will fit the form and function.

The 1200's will be recessed also.
