SG90 Servo Mounting Brackets

Does anyone know if the 3D printed SG90 servo mounting brackets that Tam Valley sells are proprietary to Tam Valley?  I've tried contacting them about this but have had no response which is understandable given the current situation there.

Can't answer your question but....



... I have the mounts above that can be 3D printed on my thingiverse.com account here....

Do you print these and sell them yourself?  I have no access to a 3D printer so that's important.

Doug, Model Railroad Control Systems sells a laser cut acrylic bracket that may be a good interim solution for you:

P.S.: Tam Valley is still shipping Frog Juicers and DCC Booster, too.

I can't print and sell them due to the hobby license I have for Fusion 360 which I used to design them.  Possibly someone else on here might be interested in doing that as my print files are out in the public domain on thingiverse.com ...............

If someone is interested in having servo controlled turnouts they can get the servo, the mount, a controller that controls the throw and the panel switches and route LED's for under $8.00 if they are welling to spend about 30 minutes per turnout so some simple soldering of some of the components.  No Arduino or computer required.  Wouldn't take many to pay for a printer that then could be used for many more things.....
