Just a feeler...

Post  scubasteve on Sun Dec 05, 2010 2:18 pm

Hey guys, I am thinking of making a recessed mount for my foot control. It will be made out of 1/8" aluminum, and all TIG welded and powdercoated just like the commercially available ones. Actually I've never seen a 'factory made' one so I cannot confirm that they are even TIG welded in the first place, but mine will be.

What I would like to know is if there is enough interest out there to build a few extras for you guys. I can tell you right now that they won't cost the $140 USD like the others do. The powdercoating can also be done in any colour to match anything on your boat as well.

I will have to do some number crunching to see what I can make them for, but for now just know that it will be at least as good as the 'name-brand' ones and will cost considerably less. I will have to see what powder-coating will cost for these things before I can get very serious about giving them a final price-tag.

Also, if there's anything else that you think you need and could possibly be built by a metal fabricator such as myself let me know.

I am posting this on a few sites, just to see if there is an interest so don't be surprised if you see this post in another forum.

Thanks!

Steve
