I thought I can do a own thread of the design of a ‘floating’ swing balance arm ( for a 18 pt mirror cell )
One can think about ; what is the gain from a centre hole based balance arm ?
Ok, low mount as arm inside the frame, but one can has the same low mount in a centre hole arm to in a frame.
What is the most easy way in machining ?
I would say both is pretty equal if one do a CNC billet frame.
I thing about the swing arm is axial supports, as glue the mirror to triangle is not a real good idea.
But maybe the arm will be ok in centre my mirrors weight even at tilt ?
What will the angle best be at, I has been into 30 degree.
Next is diameter on bearings vs reaction.
Is a smaller diameter better than a bigger ( ex OD/10 mm vs a OD/20 mm ) ?
Both a centre based arm and this swing arm will work the same as adjust the triangle.
But what should the gain be in the swing.
-Just some thought’s.
