This is a unique situation. 90% of the work has already been done. I have a wealth of drawings to share with you. The engineer already did a lot of work but he is unable to complete it.
Basically, what I want you to do is Complete & Perfect his work! If you are good with bicycles that is a plus. Ideally, we can talk on S-Kype about everything.
Part Of The Project MAY Involve the following: Creating a Locking Mechanism for a Hollow Telescopic Tubular Assembly
The task is to create a minimalistic locking for the telescope, so it allows you to set the length of the telescope at any length, or it can also be indexed so it adjust to discrete length. The telescope has four tubes and the mechanism must be discrete or with a minimalistic look, with sleek finishing.
It must work in a way that the center of the telescope remains hollow at all time. Also, you must keep in mind the production cost of it, because this will be mass produced.
These are the tubes (link removed)
Each one is 7 inches long. I am using the 3 smallest diameters:
1/2" x .110" Round 6005A-T6
3/4" x .110" Round 6005A-T6
1" x .110" Round 6005A-T6
Inside of the tubes will be a 3/64" aircraft cable inside / through them.
This is the cable: (link removed)
The tubes must be able to telescopically open and close with the cable inside.
Needs to be as small as possible
-Blends well with the telescope design
-Can lock the telescope length securely
-Must block the telescope from breaking apart (must have some kind of positive stop)
-Must not occupy any space inside the telescope
