The table will be tiltable tho I think I'm going to have to modify it a bit - as drawn it is only supported on one side, which doesn't seem such a good idea to me.

Tel on the connecting rod, did you pin the brass bushing in place? I seem to see two pins. Just curious.....
Nice work by the way.

Well spotted Don! Yes, I did put two pins in - more as a 'belt 'n braces' precaution than anything. That 2 3/16" od bush seemed a bit big to rely on the glue alone.

And did said bush come from a rather large bit of solid bronze? I've looked, but can't find anything remotely suitable from bearing suppliers.

.... a large stub of cored bronze, yes. Probably enough left here for another if you are in need.

Our local scrappy used to get a good few stub ends of bronze in and I have accumulated a few - not as many as I should have tho!  ;) Been a bit of a drought lately  :(

I think we must have been seeing what George had at the same time. I'll let you know if I need it, many thanks. Currently holed up at Milsons Point above Luna Park at a mates place. Flooded out at home since Monday, may get there tomorrow.

Yeah, keep safe - floods are not good things to argue with!

Just had a look - there's about 2 1/2" of that bronze there - if you need it it would be best to send the whole piece - much easier to make the bush with something to hold it by.

I'm very safe here! Anything over 50mm and we're often flooded in (much better than out), but it looks like it'll be more than 300mm over 3 1/2 days.

I'll let you know about the bronze Tel, I have so much to do, learning how to walk and getting back to earning a living at the top of the list. And building a shed, more to come. The die filer is up there, though.

Cheers, Hugh.

A little further along - an oospy on the bottom arm, but I'll have to live with that - might look a bit better after final cleanup.

Tiny oopsy. Paint the arms matt black, no-one will notice. Looking the business, though.

Well, it will be obscured under the work table, so hopefully yes! Still annoying when you do things like that tho' :(
