New CBrack Web Site

New web site is up. A few new products.

Re: New CBrack Web Site

Hey, any info and details on the way the laptop screen gets mounted that way? I am looking for a way to do the same with my laptop and GPS, and that looks perfect!

The screen was physically turned upside down inside the lid. No software. As I understand it, not all laptops will do this. The wiring isn't long enough.

Re: New CBrack Web Site

Haven't even started it yet. Shortly after the roll over, I took on the TK Slider production and was in the middle of rebuilding the web site. Much learning involved there - JavaScript, Perl and a few other odds and ends.

Got everything under control with a window appearing to be opening for some time to devote to the TJ. Then I was contracted to make over 1,300 parts for a contractor who builds a product that has something to do with making aircraft wings for Boeing. Couldn't turn that down. The TJ still sits.

You still out in the Nevada area? I think that's where I remember you were off to.

Re: New CBrack Web Site

No I left Nevada in June, to build a shopping center outside of Sacramento Ca,(Roseville). Its been great, I have been wheeling Rubicon and Fordyce, all summer long. with the Pirates of the Rubicon club, and many other local clubs.
Good to hear from you, I hope you can get your TJ back on the trail soon.

Re: New CBrack Web Site

I had a chance to see those new "Streamlight Stylus 3" the other day. Their really a nice product and I'm glad you added them to your line. Now I know where to get one... or two...



And the best part.. Doug's selling 'em cheaper than the Snap-on guy (Well ... Duh!).[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Re: New CBrack Web Site

Actually, I am interested in information concerning the hardware and bracketry used for the screen in these shots...

Re: New CBrack Web Site

I made all the bracketry for the LCD screen from solid 1" aluminum. The switch panel is a product on the web site. The bracketry and housing for the LCD was a custom order. No plans to market it.

The knobs, bolts and screws were cut from 1.5" high carbon tool steel. Only thing I didn't make was the spring inside the latch that holds the monitor up and some little bitty screws used to hold the bezel on the front of the LCD.

The attached pic shows some of the nuts and bolts before being powder coated.
