Suggestions for another part of the heliostat is needed!
First of all thank you especially forgesmith for your help. Now is the time for the replacement for the rubber bands (to split the distance) in the plan. Any ideas? My twin spools that retract like a tape measure can work. Also 2 "geared" wires with a gearwheel in the middle would work. The centre of the reflector be joined to a piece that passes through the gearwheel.
(I will draw it later!) Anyways, hope to get some answers. Thank you Brian
The part of the question below has been answered!
Basically i have to attach the reflector so that it can swivel round the mounting.
The way old farm tractor 3 point linkages worked on the back would be perfect. The side arms have a little ball in them and you put a shaft on the attached plough or whatever through a hole in the ball and fasened it with a clip.
Imagine the reflector in place of the side arm and you have a perfect attachment BUT there is probably a modern urban alternative.
Can you think of one?
I am in no big rush myself because I have a big work project to complete but suggestions would be awesome for the near future.
