Ok. The man's world laptop needs a man's world laptop stand.
Here we go.
I had the chance to get some scaffolding elements, which you can see in the second picture. Also I bought some aluminium tubings, 3ft / 1m each. One of the 3ft / 1m parts was cut down to 10in / 25cm pieces for the smaller connections.
Tools needed: Allen wrench, Steel saw, rubber-headed mallet, brain
For the shelf space I used a spare part of glued wood, countersunk bolts and self-locking nuts.
How it is assembled you can see in the photos. I think they are self-explanatory.
This has been a fun and really fast to realize project. Totally adjustable for any further purpose and reusable in any part.
After using the stand for a couple of days I have to face that the fittings leave a small gap to the aluminium tubes I used. Because of the heavy weight of the laptop, the wide boom and the resulting force to angle of the T-element (item# 8) it didn't move as smooth as I wanted it, and the boom was hanging down a little.
As you can see in the last pictures, I cutted up a bottle made of HDPE and used the gathered material as a bearing. Works fine and smooth, also the boom doesn't hang down so much.
