So work continues on with the Reaver, while mostly in the planning phase there has been a little action.For the most part I spent the week planning on how to make a screw action for the waist joint, while at the same time removing unwanted flash and repairing miscasting (of which there was a bit on some parts but none really major)
So having planned it it was time I did it! The original idea comes from the guys over at Blue Table painting, I merely put my own spin on it. spin... screw... oh I crack myself up.
So as can be seen in the last picture and the one below, before I could drill into the top of the waist it needed to be secure first, as the top screw part will be deeper than the waist connector. this involved mainly setting the part in place with a temporary pin, drilling the 5 pin holes located behind where the waist pistons sit, loctite epoxy, brass rod and job done!
