Day one of the new year.
Got in the shed and started bashing about with gaye abandon.
Had been considering a new stick set up for a while now,
and working things out in my mind... time to get stuck in.
Took two works in progress and disassembled to rob for parts.
The basic premise is a smaller and tidier counter weighted stick.
Stronger and less cruddy looking... or something.
here is the progress so far! :

Note. I was feeling lazy and bound the shaft together instead of welding it...
also I am convinced that binding bearings on instead of fabbing up bearing holder is the way forward.
If you use polyester thread or kevlar I am pretty sure they wont' break off in a hurry....
