Hi guys,

 

I remember that on Todd Cannon`s webpage there was an option to buy instructions how to buy needed parts and built CST pedals  - kinda DIY job. I want to try this , but as you know Todd Cannon is with tag "Wanted" , no more website etc...

 

 

So if any of you have this instructions I will apriciate support.

 

Thanks in advance.

Hello guys! If possible could someone send me the plans as well. I did not know the history if this guy and only found out this morning as I tried to find his website to look into the diy guide.

Thanks in advance.

Most specifically I am interested in what kind of servo arm he is recommending.  I am having trouble finding a servo arm that looks compatible with either kind of pot I have (smooth 6mm shaft without slot or ~18t 6mm shaft with slot)

Trust me, you don't want the "official" Todd Cannon CST DIY Plans.  Waste of $12 to me when I bought them a few years ago.  They are nothing like his CST Pedals he sold.  You are better off Google'ing  "DIY CST Pedals"  and you'll find build guides of people who replicated the models he used to sell. 

 

A good one is this one:   http://amosalipedals.blogspot.com/2008/09/building-set-of-load-cell-pedals.html

 

And to answer the question about the servo arm for the pots.   Todd's CST DIY guide did it like the below pics of Amos & Alison's build.  He use steel ball joint rod ends on both ends of a threaded rod and the rod is attached to an aluminum block they drilled to fit the pot arm and with a slot cut underneath and then drilled through on either side so you can basically clamp the block onto the pot arm.  

 

Amos & Alison's DIY build in the link above and pics below look 10x better than Todd Canon's DIY Guide I bought.   And better yet they look like actual CST pedals unlike Todd's own DIY guide.

Or you could use what is called a potentiometer steering arm or steering horn like the following

Nice one Mark.

Have some dampers coming for my F1s. Any plans to build F1 (style) Base mounted versions? Need to build myself a clutch pedal.

Maybe you should PM Darin and set up a thread for the sales of these pedals. Design similar to CST (cough, cough) but seeing as they no longer exist I'm sure your Holtech pedals would sell well.

Hello

I've now finished my 2DOF Simulator.

The only problem are the pedals and the steering Wheel which are Logitech G27.

I wanna build my own pedals.

So is it possible to get the plans also?

 

Thanks
