Almost there, guys and gals. Just finessing the follower a bit to ensure the utmost in reliability. Here’s a couple of quick pics for you. The first one is a screenshot of the SolidWorks drawing. The second one is a quick 3D print of the follower. The 3D print is simply ABS plastic. The actual followers will be formed sheet steel.
I know the 3D print isn’t very impressive. The printer I used for this one is just a small desktop 3D printer I built a few years ago. But it’s right here, handy.
