    Since Elecraft no longer sells a stand for their K1 radios, N3XKB and myself (KC6AUP), decided to design, and publish a stand that can be 3d Printed. Visit Thingiverse to get the STL files. - the files are free.

    If you'd like one printed for you, in PLA plastic, it's only $10 each with shipping costing an additional $8 per order; for as many as I can cram into a mailer from USPS. I have a wide selection of colors, and if I don't have the one you're looking for I can get it.

    Looks like that stand might rotate back to lie flat against the bottom of the case. How about a photo of that?
    Also, does the stand include the knobs as in the pictures?

    I just released version 1.4 of the stand, this version will rotate and sit flat, no pictures right now, since I lent my K1 to a buddy, should pick it up this weekend.. No, the knobs are not included in the price; the buyer may not like the knobs, as well as the cost of the stand would go up about $6 or so, knobs cost a lot for a bit of plastic and a screw.. I used standard knobs I picked up at my local hardware store. Since these stands are printed in PLA plastic, and while sturdy, they could break, and I really don't want someone feeling like they bought a stand and it wasn't what they considered a good value, I've decided to offer a Lifetime warranty for now. If you break it, your dog eats it, you leave it out in the Sun and melt it, just send it back to me and include $80 for S/H, and I'll send you a replacement. The main reason I want the old one back is because I want to see how it failed, and do I need to change the design. Now if you've send back 3 or 4 stands, we may need to talk about you're habits, and if you're a Marine or something.

    I have pictures of the new design, I printed it in 'Standard" quality, .20mm layers at 100mm/S - normally I print them at .12mm and 50mm/S which gives a much nicer texture. v-1.4-2.jpg
