In today's post I'll continue discussing the construction of my Ball & Socket Stop Motion armature. I'll be showing how to make a different kind of joint called a Hinge Joint.
Hinge joints don't offer as much movement as Ball and socket joints, but they're perfect for creating elbow and knee articulation. Plus they're much simpler to make.
This gave me 3 identical steel bars, all with an 2mm hole drilled in one end.
The final stage is to slot the joint into the K&S tubing and solder the join.
The excess bolt will be cut shorter later. I usually leave them on until I'm done.
Thanks for reading.
