This will be a No-Cal model to start with this will allow me to build something quick to see if these units will work  I  just got back from Phoenix so I will try and get some work done this weekend.

Sorry! That I did not get in on this cookup. Just too many things going on at the moment.

I looked through the posts and was amazed at all of the ingenuity and thought in what I saw in the photos.

Nice unit, Ray!  Are you going to try the system out on a stick platform before (or during) building the full-bodied version?

1st unit is done, it works but is clunky, need to fine tune this a bit.

Cheers, Ray K.

Cool Ray. Can't wait to try this. I'm heading to the weak signal Toledo Ohio show next weekend. Never know what you will find in the swap shop.

Here are some drawings to show you how each coupler is set up.

Note, coupler # 3 has the pen end cap and rubber hook drive wire, the pinning hole location is slightly off center, this allows the drive wire shaft to be center when it is hooked onto the pin, a small hook is bent on the drive wire and is slipped over the installed pin and inserted thru the center hole drilled in the end cap, 5 minute epoxy is used to fill the inside of the end cap where the hooked part of the wire is and a balsa core plug is inserted inside tube on top of this, make sure it is center and turns true before epoxy sets up all the way.

Cheers, Ray K.

The pen tube is 5/16" DIA, very sturdy material yet light weight and is easy to cut with an x-acto knife. Smiley

First unit almost done, 1 more coupler to make and the U-Bracket and it will be ready for testing, been fiddling with dimension's to make sure it will be accurate and work for you guy's, actual build time per unit should be around a 1/2 hour per unit, I will time myself on the next one.

Here are a few pictures. Cheers, Ray K.
