The steps are a pair of ½” Reversed Angle Brackets attached by their slots to a 2½”x½”
Double Angle Strip.

The legs, arms and hands of the Acrobat are attached by locknuts.

The two pinions on the top 3½” Axle are secured by 3/8″ Bolts. These bolts, when the
model is operated, catch on the locknuts of the hands and lift the Acrobat over the bar.

It is essential that the two Spring Clips are pushed tightly against the Fishplates forming
the hands.
