Thought this project by now deserves its own thread.
So here it is again fora little recap, then we'll move onto the components.
These were the sides
, but they got redesigned.
for Upper block
Back plate (front)
The original design was a completely smooth back - No longer!
Back plate (back)
- purely designed for added value. This side gets glued to the Upper block and won't be seen.
Bracket guide, 'the Plane'
- Purely designed to help people guide the brackets onto the back plate. However it doesn't quite fit. You could use the lines on the backplate to guide the brackets instead of using the plane
. I might redo a while new one.
- These little bastids also had to be redesigned.
- old & new comparison
- another pita piece. However radical improvement on previous design.
Example of how backplate
goes on Upper block
- Resting on backplate
Here's the Upper block
This is how the underside of the Upper block
Here's the Lower block
This is how I was originally intending to do the Upper block
for customers (2xsmall block, 1x plate). But I figured that would be hassle for people, so it become the one block you see now.
Here's the original which has now been drilled. It's going in for moulding yet again and yet another new block will emerge (but with a hole predilled)!
Crikey, hope that made sense! I need to count how many bits there are, but it's not bad for my first production kit!
I just hope folks don't have a hard time putting it together.
