In no particular order we observe the following:

(1)   The new blocks that pack out the crossbars are holding position nicely.  Sinew binding may be unnecessary.

(2)   As we have noted before in this blog,   it seems suspiciously fortuitous that after the springs have been  stretched to the maximum both linearly and torsionally,  that the crossbars always seem to end up directly over the vertical stanchions in the field frame.  Is this deliberate?   Would a sinew based torsion spring be so obliging as to place the area of maximum stress directly over the area of maximum support?  Are we seeing the original design express itself here?

(3)  The teeth in the side plates that are bolted to the sides of the stock, do not have an ideal angle for trapping the dual hooks that are attached to the trigger assembly.   It seems that the new hand winch is pulling at a slightly different vector than the old electric winch.  Because the locking angle is too shallow on the tooth and hook interface,  there have been repeated instances of the hook riding out of the teeth on the sideplate.  The fix is to recut the teeth and hooks.    This is such a different part of the machine for me work on,  this is actually going to feel like a vacation.  Which leads us to……

(4)  It’s only work.   Never give in.

(5)   I am finally putting some sense to an observation I’ve had before:   there must be a certain amount of slippage of the rope over the crossbar, especially because all of the materials doing the slipping are waxed nylon.  (The nylon rope is bearing down on a piece of nylon seat belt webbing that covers the crossbar, and the whole area has been smothered in gasket wax.)    By prodding with a stick,  I am able to feel that the areas of slackness in the spring that were not touched by our linear stretching, are quickly firmed up by the torsional twisting and are indistinguishable from the areas that originally held more firmness.  In short,  I have come to see that the spring has such powerful on-going forces at work that tend towards normalizing the length of all the ropes,  I suspect that the special, four point winding jig,  mentioned the other day, will be superfluous.  Maybe such a jig will make more sense if I start making springs from nylon thread.  With thread it seems there might be less tendency for slippage over the crossbar.

(6)  Never ever,  give in.     ……. And also,  in answer to Bonnie’s question of what is my technical definition of “finished” regarding this project:   for now, a working definition might be, “When I’ve run out of stuff to fix.”
