That particular Machine Order requested that the two Machines each have a Thin Armature & include a connection for a 3.5mm Mono Audio Socket.
This request didn't present any problems as I'd run the very same connection on my Old Machines back in the 90's.
Designed & made a simple Bracket (includes a welded screw) with which to hold the 3.5mm Socket.
In this case the connection is located on the left side of the Frame because the customer is Left Handed.

Next it was time to start assembling all of the components into their Frames.
Because each of the Frames is totally handmade, there's a number of slight differences between each of them & their components.
So I first need to assemble each one to work out if a Yoke is needed & then make one to suit each individual Machine...a time consuming process, but necessary.
By the end of the day I'd simply run out of time to complete some Yokes & the assembly for one Machine, so those will be next Monday's job.
