"As for adjusting the shelf, I haven't tried it, and it looks like way too much trouble. "Adjustable" means "you can assemble it at different heights.""

"Great to hear you're going to try it! Now I wish I had documented the disassembly of the control panel from the console! Here's where I'm certain. By taking the screws out of the back of the console, the control panel comes right out.…"

"Yeah, 54" isn't super high. That's about where I have my desktop when I'm walking at 7.5% incline (and I'm 5'11") How long does it take to reset the height of a shelf?"

"The desk is the Versa Center. I've been very pleased with it. The claim on the website is that it goes up to 54 inches. That sounds about right, but I cannot verify it directly at the moment. It sounds high, but it's not when…"

"Good job! Much better than any of the commercially available t-mill desks. How high do the side poles go? That is: How high can the highest shelf be? Congrats again."

Inexpensive, nice looking DIY rig

I've posted two albums that I hope give a good idea of how I built an attractive and comfortable walking desk for about $800.00.

The prototype, and the (mostly) finished product.

I would love it if these posts help somebody else!

Hello James,

I wanted to tell you that you inspired me to get the same setup as you have!  I recently picked a Proform Crosswalk 397 at Sears for $360 and ordered a desk from VersaTables.  The desk hasn't arrived yet so I'm not done, but I'm really looking forward to it and the promised benefit.

Like others I first found out about treadmill desks from Susan Orlean's New Yorker article and was immediately hooked.

One question about the Proform console: Did you actually unscrew the plastic tray and remove the inner part, the actual console?  Did you have to cut off parts of the plastic housing or are the electronics of the console protected?

Thank you!

Stefanie
