Got a new OSW mige wheel? Don’t have a sim rig or wheel stand to mount it to but want to make sure the wheel is in working order while you get everything else organized?
Have a table? Sure you do! But you can’t or don’t want to screw bolts into it because its:
a) A beautiful table
b) Its a rental
Here is your answer.
Cheap hardware clamps.
These cost me about $4 a clamp at the local hardware shop.
See the black felt on top? That is so that the clamps don’t ruin the table. Also available anywhere, commonly sold as furniture feet/floor protectors for about $4.
How do you clamp the mige? If you have the motor mount like so.
Is it stable? Absolutely, especially if the table itself is mounted to a wall.
You don’t have to cinch it down too tight either, there is no movement at all on the table with just moderate clamping pressure.
- $12 in materials.
- Easily un-clamp in 10 secs to store your mige.
You could buy a Fanatec CS table mount for $80, then find a drill bit… drill some mounting holes. Not worth it.
Pro Tip: Find a clamp with less threads than that in the pictures. The more threads, the longer it is and the more likely you will hit your leg or knee on it.
