It's a puzzle alright.
I'm way too young to have senior moments. I am shooting for 140, so that means I am just now middle-aged.
Yeah, the 2d and 3d pieces seem to go together. Problem is, the 1st and 2d pieces also seem to go together. Either way, one piece is left over. Definitely not a homemade Gripper.
The pieces are labeled one, two, three. As far as I know, that just means the order they were drawn.
Toss a perfectly good design? Well, that's not happening. Not yet anyway, I'm going to ponder on it for awhile, and see if I can recall what I was thinking when I did it.
Nope, definitely not a steam engine base.
I've been pondering on a design to make some bed risers/lists, and thought that might be an early design, but that's not it. With my bad knees it's getting to be hard on them, getting out of bed and standing. With the lifts, I'll be able to just swing my legs out, and basically just slide forward a bit and when my feet drop down and hit the floor I'll pretty much be standing, with no need to lift my body at alll. I'll lift the bed high enough so when standing my rear will be about even with the top of the mattress.
