Another hour spent on Project F (Ivan works the evening shift - thus the mid-day tinkering sessions):

- he borrowed a Lovejoy jaw-type coupling from his work to help us visualize how we may put this together. Looks pretty straightforward - some machining required, of course.

- mainly I just measured all the parts to make a drawing. I'll try doing it in Google Sketchup, since that's all I have.
