Red bushing rides on the side of the pier - i like that.
The brass bit - brass shaft in wood or brass or? straight? conic? i really like that - berry box (mount) bushing drive.
The bushing, shaft and crank - those on a swing-arm? I mean, they would be (or should be), yeah? hellacool. add a spring. or gears and a chain. then again, maybe just a spring. fatter bushing fast, thin bushing slow. i really really like it. stuff like that never just comes to me - always need a hint. smart fellar indeed.
gorram love the scope - that's a true newt. long newt. serious newt - not some stubby truss woggle. yeah. good size, too. enough light, enough length. don't paint it white - blue on the tube, Aussie flags on the berry box.
what's on the alt axis? looks like a brake of some sort and pivot bolts? more pix, please.
