Coiling Machine v2.0

Last night I sketched idea after idea, and finally converged on a prototype for my new coiling machine. So I went over to the CAD station and drew up some plans. I will cut them out tonight from a sheet of 1/4″ baltic birch I picked up at lunchtime.

I don’t know what the final height of the carriage mount will be yet, hence the rectangular design sans location tabs. I put the two bars at a 30 degree angle. It’s just a guess at what I need, but seemed to make sense as 45 felt too sharp.
