As you can see from the photo, I have made the vertical guides, the curved top bar and the crosshead.
The curved bar was bent in the motorised ring roller which I made years ago. Bending 3.2mm steel was easy. I have bent steel bar up to 10mm thick in this machine.
Parts of the guide bar. 2mm thick. I confess that these were CNC’d.
A few more parts required for the crosshead, but a test fit was quite good. It is just pushed together at this stage.
