Day 35 -- Progress Report

Got the shaft reversed on my motor, so mounting it will be easier than I thought it would be. All it needed was a $20 bench vice and a constant pressure. I felt the tension "break" of the shaft, and it slid smoothly the rest of the way. Thanks, Harbor Freight...

Had been thinking of CF pushrods, but decided they were too over priced. Picked up a set of DuBro Micro Pushrods instead. Also picked up some micro horns.

Bought a pack of Robart 1/2A Hinge Points for the elevator. The way the elevator pivots, I needed a set-back hinge line.

Picked up an aluminum tube and some music wire for the LG. That will probably be the next item to work up, so I can get the last formers mounted.

More to come...
