  1. Well. I discovered that the round Zuca frame and 2020 (20mm) had the same diameter. So what I did was that I changed the original Zuca frame at the back to 2020 v-slots. I did however keep the 5cm at the bottom were the axle goes through. Then to make it sturdy I used Elesa tube holders and 25mm tubes to make both the adjustable handle and as a reinforcement for the frame. I added inline wheels to the handle (Elesa have M8 threaded inserts for their tubes) I’m using a couple of different Accuride sliders. I sketched up the different trays and shelves and had them fabricated in a local work shop. There are a group on Facebook called Zuca Sound cart where I might have posted more details. https://www.facebook.com/groups/1595929987382210/?ref=share and yes. It’s a page turner but I’m faster turning pages with my finger then the foot so I rarely use it. But I could…
  2. I have something for that gallery. It’s a heavily modded Zuca All Terrain. A lot of expensive custom parts but it did turn out great.
  3. B0629F2D-8164-457B-BCC0-0F998CBEAC58.MOV I have to say my cup holder and my sound cart. It has evolved during 5-6 years. From a regular Magliner hand truck to this custom-build-v-slot-extrusion-cart. It has cost me thousands and thousands of hours, thinking and building.
  4. Maybe something like this would be of interest? https://www.lectrosonics.com/SPDR-Stereo-Personal-Digital-Recorder/product.html
  5. I need a good multiway NP50 so much that I would happily pay for it before it even exist. I hope you find a solution to make these chargers. I bought a couple of cheap ones from eBay... but can't trust them to make a firm connection to the battery...
  6. Well the problem with the original X3 bag is that it would fit an octopack. BUT you could make it fit. I followed Tim Whites suggestion to mod the bag to fit the PSC 6-pack. And I guess it could be done with the Octopack as well. First you you need to find a way to secure the Octopack onto the X3. So it becomes one unit. There are other people made this happened with different kind of solutions. Friction hinges or brackets (search on Aaton Cantar’s Facebook page, or write there and ask) Then you need to fabricate a L-shaped piece to connect to the bottom of the original bag, around the Octopack onto the sides of the X3 bag. Hard to explain like this. Look at these photos instead:
  7. Ok, one year later I feel like I'm done. MonoCart has evolved from a simple Magliner to something completely different. It's been a journey, that's for sure. And it has at this time cost me a fortune:) But well worth it, I have learned a lot and maybe one day, I'm brave enough to make the wheel base myself as well.
  8. I have used a regular Magliner handtruck. And then put the 10” pneumatic wheels in where it should be 8” wheels. So the nose gets 2” higher up. I think I also had to adjust the nose further up to get the desired height for the front casters. I have tried all magliner parts in all positions and with a bit of hard work and luck manage to level it. John
  9. Thanks! I bought them from the Australian company Rotacaster
  10. Ok... So a couple of years later the evolving cart continues. The base is still a Magliner handtruck but the rest of the cart has changed. Mostly because of the Cantar X3. I needed deeper shelves, heavier base, better balance. So I started to think... I found v-slots (8020ish) and started to build something modular. I wanted to get rid of the casters since a narrow cart needs a stable base. A lot of custom brackets and mistakes were made. Sometimes for the better and sometimes not. I guess it has cost me twice what it should have if I knew what I wanted in the first place... But that doesn't matter, it's been a hobby, a process that never slept. I still have ideas and things I want to do, but for now this chapter has come to an end. Maybe there will be an update in a couple of years:) Thank you all for inspiration and knowledge. I give you: "Mono-Cart 3000"
  11. Ok, Thanks! I think I’ll order the smaller sized pocket.
  12. I’m going to buy some Ursa straps but am not sure if I’m going to get the small or the larger sized pocket. I mainly use Lectro SMDB’s and I know that both sizes should fit. But if now the cable pocket is a bit small, is it wise to go with the larger pocket to have some more space for the cable? john
  13. Very nice! I also have combined a Magliner and V-Slots (cheaper then 8020) good work!!
  14. Ah, good to know! Thanks!! I would like to get rid of that sub connector on my old one, maybe that's doable...
  15. Thanks! Could you please do me a favor and compare the screws on the bottoms of the old and new? I have this mount and wonders if it would fit the new six pack as well: https://www.giantsound.co.uk/product/giant-sound-x3-6p/
  16. Would you mind show more photos to compare the old/new six pack. I would like to see all sides and underneath it as I havnt found any pictures of the new one. I have the old one attached with Tim Whites hinge mount to my X3. So screwholes must match to fit the new six pack.
  17. Hi! I have a Magliner vertical that I would like to mod with a aluminum extrusion frame. I have no experience with building with these extrusions (8020 or similar). I've seen a lot of these V-slots here in Europe, but they might be too weak? They are 20 x 20 mm, 20 x 40 mm or 40x 40 mm but with with a big hole in middle. I haven't learned how to CAD but I'm pretty good at Powerpoint... So how thick would the profiles need to be? My plan is to drive bolts through both the aluminum frame and the mag liner frame. Kind regards John Magliner-v-slot.pdf
  18. Well, let me tell you my story. I bought the Spacer Bubble in January. Used it together with a Cmit5u and a Cinela osix on one job, but heard a lot of whining and wind (in extremely light wind) so I wrote to Bubblebee. I sent it in for analys together with the sound files and Poul told me that there were a possible error. He sent me a new one with two different lengths of fur.s It arrived a couple of days ago and I haven't had the time to try it out. We'll see...
  19. My first attempt in Zaxcom. So far so good! and Ktek stingray jr... what an amazing bag. Heavy but great!
  20. I intend to use the rigid spine k-tek harness with my X3/PSC six pack bag (not ready yet). Compared to what I had earlier (788/cl8) the X3-combo-bag weight about 1kg more. Bit since that harness is a amazing back saver I know that I could easily do full days/weeks with this setup as well.
  21. Hi, I know it's an old thread, but it's still worth a try:) I found a pretty cheap used Lectro SRa block 33, and Im sondering what the current price is for an upgrade to SRb and to have the block changed to 606. Also, are there any place in Europe this service could be performed? Kind regards John
  22. I received my Spacer Bubble yesterday. It looks and feels like it's great quality. But Au haven't had the time yet to listen to it. I'll be back. J
  23. I've done some comparisons a couple of years ago: 48v UMP II: 160g incl batteries) 92x57x18mm PWLIII: 150g (inkl. Batteries) 115x36x26mm Kortwich: 85g (inkl batteries) 78x40x22mm
  24. As I went from 788 to X3 the cart looks like this for now. I'm really satisfied with the mighty and wonderful Cantar.
