Hi, joe was so kind to give me permission to convert his plans to metric sizes.
I would like to build one, but some things aren't available overhere in europe in these specific sizes, so i'll be reworking the plans.
18 mm mdf
35 mm diameter aluminium, 2,5 mm thick. I think i'm pretty much done with the base.
How does this look: enough grip on the tube? (pic 1)
Between the bearing and aluminium profile are 2 nuts. Will this give a problem? This gives me an almost perfect distance. In the joe 2006 plans it looks like there is a piece of metal tube between the bearing and profile, but i haven't found anything standard that will fit there besides the 2 nuts.
Another question. On the original plans the x axis torsion box supports are on one side longer. i made them on both sides the same. Could that give me any problems? It just looke more rigid having the pipes stick out less, but i might be making a mistake here. Some quick render:
I'll hopefully have some more to show tomorrow.
