Post New Rig - Stage Zero Copy
I have just finished building my new rig:

It's a copy of the DP Stage Zero. The problem was that I have never seen one... and I don't have a workshop!

So after loads of research I started the build. I got the Aluminium from ebay... but ordered the rollers/pulley wheel/belt and belt clips from DP's Euro Agents Elysia Visuals. One small problems is that most taps in the UK are now metric, so I ended up having to buy some American sizes. Accuracy, especially getting the bearing pads in line was a challenge, but it seems to have turned out OK. I am scared to add up the costs because I suspect when I take into account tools, I probably haven't saved myself too much money :lol: ...... never mind I have the satisfaction of building it myself!

The project continues!

Martin

Hi Martin,
Nice work man! The motor and the electronic are also from DP? (I presume the DIY kit)...
I´m also working on my copy of the Stage Zero but I´ve run into some problems because I have a 3Amp motor and I use an ¨adaptor¨ (if I can say so) for the MX2 controller. I´ll post some pics as soon as it´s ready.

All the best,
Eugen.

The electronics are the Dolly Shield kit, from DP. The motor is not from them directly, but is the same model they use, I found a supplier here in the UK.

Look forward to seeing your build.

Since it was finished we haven't had one day that hasn't been overcast and grey here in the UK!

Cheers

Martin
