Danny, that's BRILLIANT! I was approaching it as modeling a quasi-log spiral with an increasing then decreasing tan angle, and getting nowhere with it. There's a solution there somewhere, but not one I'm going to find anytime soon. Solving it numerically is less elegant, but actually got the job done so tip of the hat to you!

Will look at it when I get a chance and hopefully this gets me to simply doing the machining (which is the part I'm good at...)

Brenta- I'm sure I got your pdf, but frankly don't recall it... Lost track of a lot of things ~when I left RC, so perhaps it fell in with that?

BTW, took me a couple tries to get through DiffEq... Always been more of a make-it rather than design-it type. :-)

Quick bump before (whatever Killis is calling himself nowadays) notices I missed my end-of-year deadline... Project's not dead, but still on pause. The house restoration project takes precisence, and I'm still eyeballs deep. Will get back to this when I can, but anyone gearing up for Spring should probably give Tom@VG a call...

Bought the VGs, Aric. Still interested in being involved with the project, what's your status?

Thanks for the ping, Killis.

Let's see... Status of this project.... Well, it was on hold while I finish up restoring this old schoolhouse, and plaster repairs inside have resulted in buying (and spending 2 months fixing) a 1957 Case 310 Loader/Backhoe. And by fixing I mean there was 15 pounds of welding rod involved, just to get it functional.

No chance of me poking at this cam project until at least mid-summer, which likely means next winter, and I strongly suspect I'll miss yet another season of climbing.

On the upside, I think I've finally had enough of old houses, and backhoes are cool.

Oh, and as absurd as that all sounds, there's pics in several threads on ST regarding both the house renovation and fixing the backhoe. Too hard to post pics here from the phone, so take a look on ST of you're so inclined.

I've learned an important lesson about relationships that may apply to your situation as well: don't waste all your time with fixer-uppers. There's usually a perfectly good house right around the corner that won't require all of your time and money to probably never get fully up to speed. (it's a metaphor)

Good luck regardless. If we're talking a year, I'm withdrawing my financial pledge until such time as this this becomes something other than theoretical. Tom should have my VGs out in a few days and that should get me by for quite a while.
