I'm making a music stand based on the music stand in issue #129 from July of 2007. There are some details left out of the article and some that seem incorrect to me. I'm looking for some help, specifically around the bent stays.
The article eludes to 'photo 15' that shows the jig for bending the stays. This photo is left out of the article. Also, it says the radii of the 4 stays is 24", 28", 43", and 45". This seems odd to me, as they seem very smoothly graduated in the pictures and drawings. There's a 4" jump from the first to the second, and a 2" jump from the third to the last, but a 15" jump from the second to the third. Is this correct?
I thought maybe it should have been 24", 28", 33", and 35", but that still seems like an odd progression. Going from 24" to 28" to 31" to 33" might make sense, as there's a 4" gap, then 3", then 2".
I don't want to cut my jigs to experiment if someone else has the correct solution.
