I recently got a new desk (http://www.homebase.co.uk/en/homebaseuk/walton-office-desk---oak-effect-118125). My old desk was more complicated, and I could use a sliding shelf to mount my gear lever: (I locked it in place using a brass bolt going down into a fixed piece of wood below: ) I'd like to be able to mount the gear lever in a similar position with my current desk (instead of being on the desk, it's towards me and then down). Here's a rough diagram of where I'd like it in relation to the desktop: Ideas would be welcome. I'm okay with DIY if it's wood. And I have a lot of particle board left over from my old desk. I'm not sure about screwing something to the underside of the desk because I'd be worried about it not being able to handle all the small stresses that occur while shifting. Some sort of clamp seems better. I've done a search but a lot of the ones I find are for specific wheel stands, or they don't extend backwards enough.
