A little time to spend on things this weekend

I'm still not entirely happy with the encoder mounting bracket I made, a little concerned with how sturdy it will be over time
When my father drilled out the ali I think it might of bent it a little as when i mounted it on top of the bearing trunion it didn't seem square to the outside, put it in the vice and bent it back it seems ok now.

The alt axis as far as i can tell is very close to where It needs to be , the black brass faceing plate there is slotted and the final mounting hole is yet to be drilled, I also have a small amount of adjustment in the tangent arm if needed .
