Re: Shoulders


Great work Gordon and thanks for sharing.. Like Gordon said the bearing fitting is the way forward iv made my own type of housing that works like a bearing which is held in place with strong earth magnets I will post some pictures up of the process I used. =)

Re: Shoulders


OK heres what I did...
I made two collars out of thin steel one that fits inside the other and lined them with felt.

The ring fits inside the two collars which are held together with magnets.

I then added magnets inside torso armpit area and removed the lip that held the resin ring as the new collar replaces this. On one of the collars iv also fixed two location pins the idea is that the complete shoulder bell unit licks into place..

I will at some point add a sim cover over the ring to hide the hinge. The felt works really well almost feels like a bearing...... Hope this helps guys

Re: Shoulders


Here's my setup. I've not had a chance of field testing this yet, but so far, it looks and feels pretty secure..

I use velcro, and the shoulder ring is connected to the shoulder using a hinges, some "hooks"-stuff I found at the hardware store and elastic bands.
