anyone make such a thing?

How difficult would it be to make one myself?

I would love the ability to use my delta tuttle foil on a twin tip in addition to my surfboard especially for travel

The reason why Ketos developped their standard in 2010 was that they were not fully satisfied with the tutle std which was only tapered on two (small) faces and did not offer enough hold for the 90 cm KBFH strut.

So, they tapered the 4 faces for the best possible hold on 45+ mm depth and got rid of 1 screw.
out of the 2. Three brands have adopted the Ketos standard for its efficiency and simplicity.

Even if both plugs look compatible (Fbox +/- 45 mm - Tuttle = 52mm), my 2 cents is that the straight main faces of your tuttle plug will not find their way easily into the tapered Fbox faces.

The Ketos base plate screw spacing are announced to be Carafino/Sword compatible but they just don't seem to match : 165 x 90 vs 190 x 110:.

In order to keep control on their baby, the Fbox blueprints are not freely downloadable but Ketos send them on request..I hope that this will change in 2015 :wink:

Spotz, KFA (Aguera ?) have adopted the tuttle standard. I think that the company that would manufacture a carbon Tuttle baseplate would definitely make some money among homebuiders, travelers, ... :idea: :idea: :idea:

I saw on the Camet facebook page they have a tuttle to plate adapter, but the tuttle sticks up into the board for use with their track system.

Maybe could work for what you want if you cut a slot in the board and have the tuttle stick up through the board?
