Here's the fix for the oops in the last blog. I notched and extended the follower. On final assembly I will discover whether there is enough weight to rotate the eye attached to the follower back into place. If not I can and a little more "lumber" on the top of the roller at the end the follower, and possibly add interior metal weights. We will see.
