Hopefully I have put the last of the details on Billy the fishing boy. All the mechanical linkages have been test fitted for the upper characters. You may see the follower for the eye movement and shaft to turn Billy's head inside the glass on the right side. On the left is the follower to make his right arm rise and fall. His left arm is attached to the dock. It moves side to side.
There has been a lot more fitting of this piece than expected. In an effort to keep things compact in the piece I have not left much room for error, let alone fat fingers.
P.S. The shoes are Converse, like the ones I had as a kid.
Automata is a creative blend of my life interests , engineering, art and woodworking.
