The flying shuttle beater is almost ready.

This project was started back in August 2009 but put aside until a few weeks ago. The new shuttle race is now ready besides maybe a few more coats of oil.

I was eager to throw the shuttle back and forth but I quickly realized how destructive this device can be, once flying off its race into the cabinet, and a second time diving right into the concrete floor. Not good for the shuttle tips nor for anything around. I am affraid of it now!

Hopefully a warp will help keeping the shuttle within its shed. Maybe not?
