I've built my machine from Dray plans, but am interested in possibly driving a cutting bow, instead of the usual wire and spring attachment to the towers.

But it seems to me that the attachment of the bow to the towers must be free in 3 axes. So how is this done?

Is the bow attached to the towers with a spring? and is this in line with the cutting wire? Or is there another way people are doing this?

Thanks!
