Next part on the list was the lower pivot point of the handshifter. We removed the ugly mockup part and took all neccesary measurements. The plate parts were cut from 6 mm thick stainless steel using the bandsaw and then sanded and polished, Bronze bushings were machined and installed.

 
 
 
 

All very time consuming but fun to do. The 2 arms that will be mounted on this pivot were bandsawed from 6 mm stainless and then once again sanded into shape. In the last pic you can see how we use a machined part as a guide to sand the round ends of the arms. Simple but effective I guess!
