Bruce, here is your movie!
Very nice. I can see why you're proud of it.

This is a .mov video, opens with your iPotato or Apple Quicktime video player.

Where's the "tilt" control on the view screen ?....

Looks like a nice build, if I crank my head over just right.

Default tilt control

Sorry for the 90 degree tilt. We took the video with an iphone. Cutter was very kind to post it for me. I am ordering some course grit zirc belts and will try my grinder out on metal. The tracking wiggles a bit but the belt seems tight enough...

I made A LOT of mistakes and even though I measured twice before cutting I am amazed at how "off" my drill holes can be! I did learn to tap, thread, wire up my motor (with help), what a set screw and locking collars are.

Likely I would have backed off doing this if not for this forum encouraging me to try. If anyone has suggestions--please write them in.

Bruce

I don't get it, Doug.
It opens up right on my phone and on my desktop?

I agree. Nice build! My view is also sidewards though.

Welp, I just now viewed this thread and the video on my iPhone from the link I posted and it still opens right side up.
I posted it from my desktop and it was correct there too & still is.
I don't know what to do about you other guys.

Bruce, looks good even if it does run sideways
And for a guy who did not know the difference between a setscrew and a collar, you did very well, and now we all expect great things from you in the future

What kind of a car do you have hiding in there? Looks like you could use a little more spring tension on your tracker.
