treadmill desk - high office chair

I followed the instructions here ( to modify a Confidence treadmill to use under a desk. I used it at work with a platform I built out of some leftover laminate boards. The platform raised my desk height by 18" to make working while walking on the treadmill viable. It worked great for a year because…See More

TreadDesk Update - Tread dead after 2 years

My Treaddesk Tread started making loud buzzing noises last September just a month outside of the 2-year warranty expired. 

I contacted Treadesk who thought it was probably the capacitor on the controller board, I could replace the board for $100 including shipping. I opted to replace the capacitor myself, as that could be sourced for $15.

My body weight has been very stable (some fluctuation). My vacation was spent hiking in England 60-70 miles…
