This is ahead of me, too. I'm actually not sure that I will buy a board, but maybe build one, I haven't welded anything in a while, but I like it and I could definitely use some practice in this, so I will start welding again doing things I wanna use myself (nothing to sell or give to anybody) and that are not crucial in anything regarding safety (like motorbike parts ... I can do that - although I don't have any welding licence or so -, did so and it might work out right from the restart, but I wanna be in practice and routine before I do so again ... safe or sorry?). I'll post a thread then, don't wanna hijack this one... Anyway ... having a bit of spare space, spare electric power, ... seems a good idea to me, as it isn't that unlikely that number or size of pedals could grow. Or both, or their arrangement can't follow the rule of tightest use of space, but they rather should be arranged to be operatable best.
