Hello all! The barel clamp is nearly ready, a few details will follow. It was a bit tricky to build that part because there are only a few detailed pics, but I think my version is close to the original. The frame is Aluminium, the other parts are brass.

best regards

Sascha

Awesome! :D

Did you weld the lower half to the legs or machine it out of one part?

Hey Christoffer,

the lower part is also machined out of one part. It was easyer for me to made it out of a single aluminium block. So later I have no trouble with the radius or any gaps and so on.

Hi Sascha,

This is an awesome mod. Would you mind sharing the length of the gun barrel lock rack, both inner and outer one? Thank you.

Hi Chang,

I made a fast drawing with the measurement you need. This are not all measures, feel free to ask if you need more. My source was Per Sonnerviks sketches (mostly from Kubinka JT) with a lot of measure wich I adopt in CAD. So I think it should be very close to the original. This is only a Screenshot, but I have made a pdf with much better resolution. PM me if you want that pdf.

Hey Folks,

last weeks I finished the wheels and tracks. I also closed all unnecessary holes. New is also the Periscopebase at the frontplate. I used 6mm aluminium, a few headless screws are already missing.

Hi Folks,

the A-Frame for the barel clamp is nearly ready. It is a much mur complicated part as it looks. Because of much angles and the position of the "Bosch Tarnscheinwerfer" the complete A-Frame must be fit around the Light (in reversed position of the clamp mechanism) I had to build a second A-Frame and now everything works fine.

regards

Thanks alot!

@Christoffer: Yes I hope so :D

@Robert: This is an older Gießwerk Bosch Lamp, I visited Martin a few years ago in Munich, a few weeks before he passed away.
