Ok update, got the blades to work, manually, perfectly! Nice and smooth now. Going to 3Dprint a block for the blades to screw on to so its lighter than the wood I have it on. As of right now I'm working on the pull string system. The design is printed but I'm trying to get a short and strong enough spring to retract the string back to neutral position (needs to fit in a 2mm square slot and needs a little strength as I'm using coated picture wire.) After that I'm done! I figured I can change the design and make something like Petes and it would be no problem, but, I'm trying to keep the mechanism very thin and low profile. Right now it's 10-12 mm tall in total. I want it to fit in any style gauntlet. If the picture wire doesn't work I'll go back to string.
