K1 Tilt Stand ???

Doug Hensley
Does anyone make a simple flip down bail (wire stand support) for the K1

as is available for the K2 ?


I'm continually tilting the K1 back using a book or similar to position the

front panel for easier viewing.  1.25 to 1.5" tilt should work.


TIA,


Doug W5JV

K1 007xx

Doug,

None that I know of.
If you have a bandsaw (or know someone who has one), I would cut a wedge
from a 2x4 that is as long as the K1 is deep.
That should be a better solution than a book.

When I owned a K1 my tilt stand was a length of 1" flat bar from Home depot bent in a U.  It flipped up and just cleared the tuning knob to protect the front panel during transport.

      Try LapWorks Laptop Legs.  The grey ones are a perfect match.

      Alas, availability seems to be falling, and prices appear to be
rapidly climbing -- I'm guessing they aren't being made anymore...
