Eye Stalk

The finished item...

This is the finished eyestalk with the baked-bean-tin/sugar-bowl combo at one end, followed by the plastic tube and eyedisc assembly. After that there is a length of aluminium tube, followed by the pivot.

The whole thing is held together under tension by the bolts at either end. Now all that is left is to attach the eyestalk to the dome...


I can see!

The finished eyestalk fitted into the dome. Two bolts have been screwed into the captive nuts in the sides of the pivot. The bolts pass through a U-shaped bracket, mounted inside the dome. The nuts are left fairly loose so the pivot is free to move up and down.
