Finally back in the shop after some kitchen renovations, some time with the grandkids, and fighting off the persistent summer cold! What was supposed to be a fairly straight forward piece has turned into a never ending game of adjustment. My buddy the frog has been a challenge. Maybe it is because I have been away from it for a while or maybe I have lapsed into early senility. It seems every time I assemble something I find another interference! I guess I haven't been looking at my CAD designs closely enough!
Anyway I'm back at it and here is the frog in a pre-assembly fit up. Just one more piece of the mechanism to add. Hopefully it will work the first time. Based on my track record lately, it could take weeks!
Automata is a creative blend of my life interests , engineering, art and woodworking.
