    This is how im gonna mount the frame on to the desk.







    The next thing to do is making the mounting holes for both the column covers as for the frame.
    I also had some great news from Linak and they are sponsoring me a column for lifting the 2 dell screens.More about this next week.

    More to come.

    Today i received a very nice package from Linak.Inside there is the lifting column for my screens,a new controlbox and a control panel.













    Thanks Linak and specially Adwin.



    With al the goods there is a special cable with a jack connector and a column connector and a cable with a jackplug.These cables are for the security for the desk if you get stuck.When the desk comes down and your legs are underneath the desk it wil stop so you cant hurt yourself.The last part for this i receive this week.

    Saturday im gonna make the bracket and more.I also make a testdrive with the column for the screens.I will make a short movie while testing it.

    More to come.

    Update 5.

    This weekend i made some progress again.This week i received the security part for the desk.
    Its a hose full of little switches and if 1 switch is pressed then the columns stop moving and go up for about 50mm.

    The package.







    Linak also gave me a special connector to connect the jackplug.I already test it and i will make a short movie soon.



    Thank hpr and specially marc.



    Also linak called when they seen the update with the lifting column for the screens and told me that i can mount the column up side down because im using it for lcd panels.So i made a bracket for it and mount it on the frame.







    Cheapskate asked me why use stock gear and not making a custom stainless steel reservoir so i came up with a new reservoir design.

    First i made a few covers on the lathe.Then i drilled and tapped them with g1/4.

    Then i did the measurements for the hole where the I/O panel in gonna be mounted.



    Cutting out the hole.



    Drilled and countersunk the mounting holes.



    Mounted the I/O panel inside the desk body.
