Re: Garmin 500 custom mount [rebem]
A word of warning guys - beware of metal fatigue. My Garmin overtook me on a downhill today at about 50kmh and rolled off into the bushes. Found it luckily but it looks like I'm either back to the drawing board or I'll be begging Tillquist for one of his Starship Enterprise mounts!
That's a drag. At least you got it back. The first mount I created stupidly used only industrial epoxy to hold the disc to the aluminum extension. The bond failed, my 500 went skittering out into the middle of the road and was promptly crunched by an oblivious Mini driver. I really should have known better. Sigh.
Forming a sharp 90° bend in flat stock is always going to be a problem sooner or later. For your next iteration, maybe try to form a curve instead?
