^ That is Impressive, Might just print it off and get my local engineering shop to make me one :)

Must have taken ages to do that. Thanks for Sharing.

Phil, I don't mean to criticize in any way....that is admirable work but some of the dimensioning call outs are confusing to me.

Well, my S1 doesn't have an anti sizzle and anyone using the drawing would figure it out pretty quick so I am just being nit picky. :D My drafting instructor from many moons ago would have me over the coals for it so I just want to mention that the call out on the nut at the top of the page is for 7/16 UNF when, I believe, the shank should have an OD of 7/16 and the ID should be 5/16 UNF threaded. just a little unclear and different from what I was taught! :D

Whoops...double post! I have either developed a tick or my mouse has developed a nasty double click tendency.

It's not confusing, just in plain error :oops:

The thread on the nut should be 5/16 UNF (to match the lever); The shank should be .432 (measured on 4 washers) to give some clearance on the washers. Thanks for drawing this to my attention (no pun), I'll correct the print & re-post.

Thread corrected on PDF drawing Feb 6th 2015
