The time had come to make a start on the part which will suspend the piece. I suppose I had been putting this off, I had made a sort of crutch out of steel bar which I could hang it from, but I needed to finalise this crucial part.
This shows the main support bar being shaped using a tool I have made for just this purpose.
Here is a range of them I have made over the years.
The arm takes shape and the support parts are clamped in place and adjusted.
the support arms are drilled through the bar on the milling machine.
This is how it came together.
