  • Trigger mount from a ceiling fan

    Has anyone tried a ceiling fan brace. ( a few bucks each at Home Dumpo) So far it looks and feels like there is plenty of strength and very easy to adjust. The Delrin platform can be had in many thicknesses. fine tuning could be done with shims under the platform. This one was cut down to fit 14 - 18 inch shells. If torquing over is an issue, there are some surfaces to use for other screw holes.

    Let me know what you think before I get to far.

    That looks like a really simple way to mount your piezo and cone. The only drawback I see is there will not be a way to adjust the vertical height of the cone. Shimming will work unless the height is too great. If that is the case you may experience a "Leaning Tower of Piezo". See what you can work out and post any concerns or problems here.

      I was thinking of that. Right now I'm 2 inches away from the head. The cones are 1.3 inches tall and the foam tape and piezo made a rough 1/4 inch, I should be close. Using a thicker platform. Should be getting in my piezo soon. I'll take some pics.
