3A style topstage

Starting to think about the other parts of the steadicam, working on a 3A style top stage, here’s what I have so far.  I worked off some photos I found online, so the dimensions are a total guess.  I found a rack and pinion gearset on mcmaster carr, the rest should be pretty straighforward.  Going to glue the rack in the top plate, and add some screws to add friction to the sliding parts, as well as some hard stops to make sure the camera doesn’t fall off.
