    Re: Manufacture new Bygraves?

    Brad,

    "One thing we must agree upon as a consortium is what we are to build.  The 
    easiest approach will be to copy (exactly) either an existing Bygrave or an 
    existing MHR-1.  That is copy the pointers, copy the tubes, etc.
    No thought is required and for this exercise, that would be a good thing."
    
    How about starting with a look at the insides of a Bygrave and at how the 
    MHR-1 was locked (my guess is that it uses the same principle as a collet 
    chuck)? If it's simple to transfer the mechanism to a Bygrave, then people 
    who want one can take their choice. Purists can have the original Bygrave and 
    pragmatists can have the modified one. I don't see this as a particularly 
    complex issue.
    
    In New Zealand, Real Men are supposed to be able to make anything work with 
    number 8 fencing wire and baling twine. My problem is likely to be to access 
    the right materials, which is why I look to the engineering cornucopia of the 
    USA...
