08 Joint Design Nº 181

I scribed lines on the arms for elbow joints. I set up the arm by taping it to a can of vegetables. The can is heavy enough so the arm does not fall over. The measurement from the top of the shoulder ball to the elbow line is 148mm. I use two combination squares to make an adjustable stand for a sharp pointed dental tool. I adjust the height of the dental tool until the point is 148mm. I scribe the line around the elbow with the sharp point of the dental tool. I work slowly and carefully. Click on any image to enlarge it.

According to Yoshida, the arm should be cut through the middle of the elbow, so that is where I am scribing the line.

I use the same set up for the other arm.

Now, both arms have scribed lines at the elbow.

Here are both arms together.
