Another great project, Frank! I love the industrial-look and the Frankenstein switch!

Thanks for showing us the pics!

Very cool. I think you could sell the plans for that design. I'm sure you have a fair amount of time invested.

Cool indeed! I'm with Phil in thinking you could probably sell the plans for it. It's hard enough to make progress on the bucket list and then I have to add one more.

What program did you use to generate the gears?

so go for it men regards frank
