spindle I can



When I had an Eagle SG I used two ex Landrover wiper motors to traverse and cross feed, coupled via toothed belts. Used microswitches and relays to reverse at the end of stroke and to trigger a short cross feed. By no means ideal but I was fed up with getting stiff arms cranking it back and forth. Now I have a hydraulic J&S 540 all that hassle has gone
