Thanks Kim, this is beginning to feel more like jewelry, I think it would have so much easier in 3 1/2 inch gauge. I have completed the main work on the eccentric rods and am getting ready to begin the weight shaft and radius rods. the pins are just proxy keepers for the moment I need to make the proper ones with the taper pins to fix them, I am looking at #60 drill ish for the pins perhaps even smaller. :facepalm:

the weight shaft brackets are now fitted ready for the lifting arms which will be pinned to the shaft.
