Thanks guys. Christmas I think it’ll take longer than that! 

My first project is in hand, repairing a broken pivot. I’ll show how I’ve gotten on once I’ve finished.

Not too sure on the belts, they look a little used so with the new motors they will be replaced. I have had a fun day playing :)

If this is the 1st pivot you are doing maybe get an old pivot or just a bit of round steel and have a practise before you do the one for the clock.

That’s the plan Jimmy. I’ve had a go at turning down a thin bar drilling into the end and also thinning down a piece of pivot wire and shaping it. Working this small is a challenge. Getting the centre point is very tricky but the U3 is pretty tight.
