Sometimes off-topic is the only way, but I did at least sort of acknowledge the orignal subject!

Now if someone ACTUALLY HAS the information Grumbern requested, I will gladly shut up.

Hey, I have no complaints!  Gotta fill the awkward silence while we wait...  ;)

Silly question, perhaps, but... grumbern, you did ask about this in other places besides this forum, didn't you?

Yes, I did. Asked  at HMC, too, but without any luck.

Holy crap!  And I'm pretty pleased with myself being able to make my own toast...

Grumbern - if this works, I see a new side business in your future...

Well, IF it works as good as I think, I will probably do this for others, too. It would be a shame to have a piece of machinery like this standing around for just 2 or 3 harnesses ;)

I machined the half-axles for the gears to sit on and countersunk (right phrase? :o ) the top plates used as guides. The bearings are clamped between these axles and mounted to the baseplate using two bolts:






Losely mounted:




Now I have to make the 22 distance pieces to assemble the top plates (inner and outer) and then work on the drive gear.

I don't understand why you bothered to go to all this to get some braiding. They sell the antique type of braiding in all sizes for this online. I've got rolls of this in the shop.  ERC

That's awesome!  Wish I had the know how and resources to do something like that.  If it all works out for you, you could definitely make some money with it.
