Hi David, thanks for your reply. could you advise me on the best material to make the bow out of, and how big it should be. as I have bad arthritis in my hands It is difficult to polish pivots, a jacot tool is beyond my funding at the moment . so I thought I would use this tool to hold the gear and polish the pivots with my burnisher while turning the drill with a bow operated by my left hand and the pivot resting on a piece of hard wood with the depth filed in to accept the pivot. wood would be placed in the second vice making sure that the pivot was totally trued up.
I do appreciate the help that I get from the forum.
many thanks
Alan
