Putting on a little weight!

In counterbalancing the system, with two telescopes attached, Bizibilder had to put the counterweights at the very end of the counterweight bar to achieve balance.  This leaves no further room for adjustments.  So, to compensate, Bizibilder has turned up a couple of extra small counterweights from off-cuts lying around (i.e. free!!).  One is shown here.  The clamp nut is a levelling foot from his old fridge and the brass “insert” is to prevent burrs being made on the weight bar (leading to the weights being impossible to move or remove!).
