Update on My Treadmill Desk

I made an addition to my treadmill desk. I got an inexpensive display for the top shelf and moved my laptop to the lower shelf. I also added a small speaker system. Here’s what it looks like now.

I think this is an improvement, I was missing my big display at my sitting desk.

Important Note

We have had this treadmill for a long time. It’s track hasn’t been lubricated for years. A treadmill desk will get used for hours at a time. I was using it a few days ago and it overheated. It stopped, displayed an error code and smelled like burning rubber. I didn’t use it again until I got some treadmill lubrication. Everything is good now and it’s even quieter.
