Re: WIP "The Politician" Body Frame

Hi Jim,
Thanks for your comments. Two types of cable are used, a synthetic cord used by people stringing beads, and a nylon coated braided stainless steel line used by fishermen to prevent fish biting through it. (Both made in the US ) The cord is used where connections to moving parts need to be very flexible, yet strong. The stainless  is for connection from those points to the cams. Both are very strong, 20lbs break strength. 
A friend's wife has kindly offered to sew a suit for the politician, a great relief ! A series of ply "bones" flesh out the frame so clothes might fit properly. A pause now, in my work for this to be done, to be resumed for the cams and control mechanisms whenever that can continue.



Thanks for viewing,

Regards,
Gus
