Dual keyboard tray (picture included)?
I'm looking for a dual keyboard tray. I can't seem to find one for the life of me, I found this picture however:

Something like that would be perfect. Anyone know where to purchase a couple of these?

Not that this helps alot, but couldn't you just make one?....somehow doesn't look like it would be that hard to do, either from wood or sheet metal. The one in the pic looks like the bottom keyboard just sits on the desk to me.

Are the tops of those stands tilted forward, or is that just the tabs on the keyboards? If it's just the keyboard tabs, then they look like the monitor stands you get with cheap chipboard computer desks.... should be able to find those at staples/best buy.

hrm.. if anything that's probably a monitor riser with keyboard tray. <?>

I'd prefer something professionally made over building something myself. A monitor stand with keyboard tray looks like what I'm looking for. Thank you, I don't know how I didn't realize that. I'll just have to do some searching as I don't want one very tall as it will be uncomfortable to use the upper keyboard.

Thanks for all your responses. :)

Mind me asking why you need this and can't use KVM Switches?

My mice are razors which don't work with KVMs. I know I could use KVMs to cut the amount of keyboards in half, but then there's the extra wires. Also since I am often switching between computers I think I'll be more comfortable just moving my hands to a different keyboard rather than having to press a button each time.

Heard of Synergy? Great free app which is basically a software KVM.

Check it out: Synergy - Welcome - Synergy

Only issue I've ran into with it at work is that it doesn't support UAC. Need a mouse to hit Allow on each PC. Luckily though, it's not totally locked down (since I have admin rights) so I disabled UAC :haha: Also might not work on the login screen. As such I still have a hardware KVM to switch the keyboard between PCs when I need to login/unlock the PC, but use my Razer DeathAdder over Synergy.
