I open the topic for the foils. Because, I have that 6 boards with me but no foil.
IS there anybody who produce any cheap stuff or sth just for a beginner ride? ....
Hope to hear any co-operation!
I look for some help to make that boards useful.
2 families of foil plate hole spacing I know of
+ 165 x 90mm for Carafino / Taaroa / MHL / Fastafoil
+ 160 x 85mm for Zeeko
??? For Feelafloat
Just buy (aluminium) plates (185x110mm or 180x105mm = + 20mm in each direction))
1 - Drill 4 holes spaced according to the board diamond pattern (left figure). Taper them to 4 receive countersunk screws. These 4 holes shouldn't be threaded.
Drill and thread 4 more holes in the plate corners. Then, 2 possibilities:
A - If you want to use bolts to maintain the foil plate (middle figure)
Warning - Engineering rule - For a longlasting thread grip, the plate thickness must be >= 1,5 times the bolt diameter. Ex: for 6mm bolt use 9mm alu plate (mini).
Screws must be chosen or cut to a precsie length as they must not dammage the board bottom.
Use 4 bolts to maintain foil plate.
B - If you want to use nuts to maintain the foil plate, less flush but more secured (right figure) as you don't have to respect any thread depth.
On the board bottom side of the plate, lock 4 countersunk screws to the plate (if soldering = SS plate) - Fix plate to board - use 4 nuts to maintain foil plate.
A 9 or 10mm aluminium plate with SS bolts should be quite rigid.
Disclaimer: this is a try and error solution to allow you not to reinvent a KBHF around a ??? USD board.
