While machining some of the components is when the idea came to me. This idea will allow the use of the same basic components and more importantly the same tooling and fixtures. If it does work as I think it will I will offer them already set up or if someone has purchased a shifter and then decided to try this it could be done at a reasonable cost without purchasing a new shifter. Keep in mind if it does not work I probablly will not design a new one from scratch.
Are you still developing a ratchet style shifter?
