Starter signal for Rhiw

Some wobbly photos of Rhiw's starter now erected and working. It took two of us the best part of two hours to get all the linkage working. But now it goes up.... ...and it goes down.

All via some Gem wire in tube on the horizontal to the board edge and the Ratio wire to the balance weight. The two planes linked by a piece of 7mm copper-clad sleeper, fashioned into a crank by Mr. Hill after the Ratio plastic one broke. I had my doubts about using this, but as it was there, I thought I'd try it.

The wire that runs to the top of the photo is just the spare end pre-trimming.
