Managed to finish off the lever/"rack" today.
I wanted the handle to be easily removeable so it has a loose slidefit.
Also pressed a collar onto the handle(the part that goes off-screen) to give it a good stop.

I wanted to try something so I cut the tube up and hammered it into oblivion to make the end close up.(the one that had a blue strip in previous pic).

Finally managed to get a good-ish weld on this thick stuff, probably my best weld so far!
You can also clearly see how I missed my tolerances when lathing that smaller piece. :grin:

Finished handle/lever/rack assembly!
I've hung it up for paint now and applying some zinc before painting them.
