Angel Frame on Shoebox

Can someone link me or post up a how-to on mod'ing an angel frame to fit onto a Shoebox. I know it's been done countless times.

Thanks,
-Trevor

Its very simple if you can solder and tap holes. The frame will bolt right on(you just need a nut for the front frame screw). You need a microswitch with leads, solder that to the existing board switch. Then create a mounting plate for the new switch. Drill and tap the frame for the mount, drill and tap the mount for the switch. Just eye up an activation point for the angel trigger and switch before you mount anything.

I know thats not exactly a walkthrough but its very simple if you just think it through.

That basically what I was looking for. I appreciate it.

Why do you need a nut for just the front frame screw? Back too?

Any recommendations on the type of material the mount should be made out of, the screw and associated tap sizes for the mount, and an online store that sells light microswitches with leads?

A single trigger angel frame would be pretty badass.

Thanks,
-Trevor

The tray has a large slot for the front frame screw, you need a nut on top of the tray to tighten. The back screw is threaded through the tray so you dont need a nut, just use the existing threading.

The mount could be multiple things. Thin aluminum plate, blank circuit board, carbon fiber(I did this, looked very cool), anything you can drill and tap through.

Check mcmaster out for parts. Dont have sizes off the top of my head.
