Well Observed,,,Yes I moved the things around a bit to get a nice balance..
the fork arms are unbalanced at manufacture, I moved the finder, and put the 100 where the finder was, dropped 5kg off the weight required to balance the overall units..seems to work ok,,, I can bias it either way by moving the counter forward or aft by quater inch,,,fluked it really...

I now understand why you have "Need a bigger truck" in your signature, Sir D. What a beast.

Nevertheless it's good to see you have your daughter learning the finer points of computer control, but I'd be more careful when you do move it; it looks like you've done a fair bit of damage to the house already.

OK, here it is. I've resisted for quite while now... I haven't got a good photo of me showing my eight inches (of scope)... so here's a photo from another life. Taken at Parliament House Sydney December 2002... Bob Carr is just there for scale. This is about as shiny and polished and beautiful as I get - isn't that a shame! (BTW I'm the dude on the left ).
