National fiesta last Friday, everything was shut, so did a bit of machining.
Wasn’t happy with the clap hinge on the prototype, slightly agricultural.
It was really uncomfortable to hold in one hand, so I machined down the arms to make the brackets flush.
The clearance required for the hex fixing bolts was tight, so need to move the fixing hole a bit to the right.
The sharp bracket angle was annoying, so rounded them off. I didn’t have any dome headed hex bolts
A lot more comfortable to hold.
Got a few quotes for making a real protoype box, ouch, about the same as a month’s rent for my Spanish appartment. But finally got some money for an
illegal naughty but race winning modification I did to a slot car controller, over 18 months ago.
1 to 2 weeks. 3 to 4 weeks, arghh
The end is in sight.
