When having to place servo's in your rc plane/boat/vehicle or robotics project, often we're missing a mount.
And since we don't want to end up cutting servo holes in our frame, but rather add the servo to the frame via a mount, I have created a servo mount for both the 40mm x 20mm standard servo and the smaller 12mm x 23mm servo.
- 3mm wood or plastic
- laser cutter
- CA glue ( medium thickness )
- sanding paper / wood file

Step 1: Cut Out the Material
I have used a laser cutter to cut out my material ( 3 mm MDF plate ).
When using the svg file you get material for:
- 8 pieces 40mm x 20mm size servo mounts
- 8 pieces 23mm x 12mm size servo mounts
The sheet I based the design on: 600mm x 300mm, 3mm MDF.
Step 2: Fit Your Servo
Since the cutting is done quite exactly with a laser cutter, you will probably need to sand the tray to make the servo fit.
Step 3: Glue Together
Now that the servo can fit, we remove it and we glue the parts together. I use CA glue for this.
Simply add CA glue to the joints and then push it back together.
I put a syringe needle on my bottle of CA glue for more precise working.
Once the glue has cured, you can add some extra CA glue in the corners.
Step 4: Add Your Servo
Now simply add your servo and you're done.
You can now also cut off the pieces of wood that are sticking out. I designed it with some extra material sticking out, since cutting off the extra material is easier then adding material afterwards ;)
