I'm doing paddles too!Hi Rod, I totally missed this thread. I'll be watching carefully, as I'm using the Holinger MFT as well. I have gone exclusively with the compressor and paddles insterad of the shift-cut lever like you've got there. I'd be fascinated to see which ratios you've chosen.
Keep up the great work.
Gale, if the U-joints are not phased correctly, the rotation won't be the same angle from input to output as you rotate the shaft through 360 degrees. The rotation slows down and then speeds up.Interesting question. Why does phase mater? Further, what would be in phase? I’m going to go have a look at mine. I didn’t know about this.
