Ok, finally finishing up the bogies. I am currently working on the spacers that go between the front and back pieces of the bogey assembly.
The spacers need to be slightly wider than the spring and bogey arms, so the arms are free to pivot:
First I cut UHMW blocks to be about the same width as the spring. Then I drilled matching holes in each one to be bolted between the front and back of the assembly:
Then, so the spring has room to rotate and flex, I need to cut off the bottom, and bottom corners:
These go quick, there are only 6… so after a few more cuts, some routering of the edges, and after I get the bolts that hold them all together, the bogies will basically be done.
