Getting around to the final assembly after cutting a new case for the automata. Unfortunately the new box was not quite an exact replica of the previous one so some adjustments were needed. There is likely a lesson learned here! As a result I have had to add a few 1/32" shims under a few of the pedestals to make the mechanism run freely. You can see one of them being fitted under the centre pedestal in the photo.
Automata is a creative blend of my life interests , engineering, art and woodworking.
