Anyone know where I can find "c" brackets that are a bit bigger than standard. Ideal dimensions would be about 8 inches wide and roughly 5 inches deep. I've checked a bunch of places, including all sorts of servo mounts / bracket suppliers, but no luck.
I'm trying to make (or buy) an inexpensive tilt. Exactly like a standard pan and tilt- but without the pan. Also, this will not be operated by a motor / servo. It will need to manually tilted, and then locked in place.
I'm hoping to accomplish by taking two "c" brackets -one slightly wider than the other, then lining up the axle holes and putting a screw through. This will create a joint. Then I'll simple put a bolts on the end and tighten (think this will work?). L-Brackets could also be made to work, but I'd prefer two ready made "c" brackets or an existing inexpensive tilt.
Exactly like these, only bigger:http://www.active-robots.com/products/motorsandwheels/servo-motors/asb09-750.jpg
