I was perplexed by the challenge of figuring out how to mount the sleeve to the head and have it be aligned correctly. I decided it should be adjustable, at least temporarily.

For reasons of his own, Old Man had sent me a box full of 2.25" x 7 gauge drops from from someone's iron worker.
I decided to see if I could finally find a use for a few of them, four of them as it turned out.

1 - 4. More accurately, 2 pairs. One disc of each pair is drilled and tapped while the other is slotted way beyond what I actually needed but I figured that overkill was a good option. The center holes are for a pivot pin or bolt.

The goal is to provide a setup that can pivot in two planes, horizontal & vertical.

Here are some steps along the way.
