That is &%&$^%##@* perfect! Simple, clean. Not even a need for any sort of spring for turning the shaft. (would use one any way to draw it down for keeping it out of the way)
Ding, ding, ding.... we have a winner. That just made #1 on the next project list! Really had wondered if some thing like that could work being so simple.
Very cool Joab, thank you for sharing!
Dang, now have to relocate my uber cool throttle system. Really is cool old world motorized bicycle looking. well sorta. Took for ever to get perfect. LOL, you just bared out some thing I wanted to try and I am complaining.
Is very exciting.
