A third motor bracket iteration.
This one has a small tab at the front to hook under a special spacer under the front trucks, designed by Jason. This means that this should be able to clip on and off the board.
Damien and Haydn bought a sheet of 5mm aluminium alloy earlier in the week. We thought we could template this motor bracket onto this aluminium ourselves and cut it ourselves. Ideally, a laser or water-jet cutter would be great for cutting this sheetmetal template to precision and we could bend it up ourselves in studio. Advice from the workshop technicians suggested that we couldn’t, especially at that 5mm thickness.
We took our sheetmetal to a metalworking place on Adelaide Rd. They weren’t very happy to produce it for us at a days notice but will consider it. We have a backup plan if they’re too busy. We gave them render images, paper templates and a new cardboard mockup to work from.
