Here is a shot of the gear.



It was made from .060" x .100" styrene, gear "teeth" are .035" on center.
I gave it a quick wash of silverwood to help show them.

I have been working on the tool holders.
here is the reference picture;


And here is where i am as of today;


The curved tool adjuster is a paper proof from Dave at http://www.vectorcut.com/
I tried to do them myself but with the styrene being only .060" wide it deformed a little...
For size reference the square "backing" above is .800" square.

More soon!

Looking good Marty. You need to build a full machine shop in this scale all you need is a small building in your back yard.

Marty the machine looks great, I'm curious why you used hex bolts on one side of the tool mount and square ones on the other side?

Michael,
I'm working from prototype pictures.
The square are like my epics, the brass hex on the back are not prototypical.
the brass hex also allow me to remove the holder for painting.
thanks.

Update, as of right now;


I've added some items and improved some......
Still just laying together so I can paint all the components separately.

It is almost as big as my Sherline I am using to make the parts!
In between eating and drinking I did manage to work on the model.
Below is the left belt shifter.
FWIW the width of the styrene channel is .500, the levers and such are 9/32" and the hardware is 1 mm.
And yes it does function.
The trick will be getting the one on the other side to work in tandem with this one!
And the associated linkage.......... Shocked


Happy New Year!
-Marty
