Meyer's compact alternative to the
jib halyard magic box
From: Amelia Meyer
My dad and I were at Clark Lake this
past weekend, in W2413.
You and I discussed that I should send you a link to my
project, a screw-based
replacement for the jib halyard tensioning systems
sometimes called magic boxes.
Please find here a blog post I just published on the subject: https://www.i3detroit.org/wayfarer-magic-box-replacement/
In addition, all of the design files,
as well as 2D prints
and assembly instructions, can be found here: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3885473
Feel free to post these links on your website, and/or send them to people you think might be interested in them. All of the designs are open-source, and derivatives are fine so long as there is an attribution to me mentioned in the new designs. I would prefer to collect questions or comments on the Thingiverse site linked above; easier to manage in one spot. However, I can take those at this email address if needed.
