20 pictures of B737 homebuild TQ
I added 20 pictures of the building process of my motorized throttle for my B737 flightdeck.
To be found in my album: PDG_737 , keyword Throttle.
Hope it inspires you.

Outstanding work. Quite impressive design and craftmanship.
500+ This must be a daytime job
Having flown Peters sim i can add that this is the most impressive 737 throttle i've ever played with !! (except for the real one that is )
I'm really happy Peter is helping me motorize my real 200 throttle now.

WOW It looks like a real throttle Can I ask you how did you make the metal parts ? You made them yourself ?

Thank you, thank you, for your encouraging comments.
Maxime, indeed I made the metal parts myself, except the speedbrake. All parts are aluminium. I am the lucky owner of a small CNC machine. That forces me to translate my sketches in autocad drawings. Sometimes a bit time-consuming, but it has the advantage that it helps discovering any design faults in the first stages of building parts. If I would'nt do that, I always get parts that don't fit or just have wholes in the wrong places.
I think that patience and a steady hand often can compete with a CNC machine. All parts you see in my throttle, could be made by hand. If you make a good drawing first and take your time.
