Finalised the suspension design and cut the first unit to confirm it working as required.
Am using a much larger spring in this version so that it is able to hold even more.
Version 1 and 2
Fresh of the machine as they are cut, very little wastage of 10mm Aluminium
Parts broken out, only a very small amount of filling on the tabs that held it all together while cutting

All parts ready for assembly, the spring is one of 3 cut from one bigger spring, the steel shaft is just for testing the unit, these will be spun on a lathe with a thread on the end as well

Version 3 which will be used in the tank, expected lift 17-18kg's
