Nice job on the rotary scale!

You seem like your pretty sharp with electronics maybe you'll like this. This is the guy that came up with the dragon (tube pro back then)that Bend tech now sells.

Bend pro, hes working on a hydro version now. Hes on here too , JGS Fab.

Thanks,

I'm still retaining the original 1.25" pin, I have bushed the arms with bronze bushes and so it sits in there, and have just milled a flat onto the pin which a grub screw sits on, it's a bit crude but works, I'll try and see if I can find some photos of the build and upload them.

I have attached a photo from an old image hopefully this will show how I've done it, I only bushes the main arms as the arms being pushed rotate with the die, so I thought it wasn't needed,
