I've been locked up in my office on the computer doing CAD drawings of the inner workings of "The Waiting Room". Seems like a good way to strain your lower back and neck at the same time! Anyway I got back in the shop for an hour tonight and knocked off some of the follower pedestals I had designed. (or stands to make the pun in the entry title work). I make them out of popular for strength, and use 1/8" brass rod for the fulcrum pins. I add a little buttress block to the taller ones once they are set in position to help strengthen them. I contour them so they fit in under the cams without interference. Got a few more to make. I think they are 15 in total! Oh well maybe more tomorrow.
