So far so good LBM Yes, these bellows are to be screwed in that "bar".
And you're right, the top bellow should be weighted Wink

Testing out some video monitors to use for the 2 smaller video screens on the VK, the link to the video is below:
https://youtu.be/GZfk-dMUV5w
For my VK I'm looking at 2.5 inch diagonal screens with a 4:3 aspect ration, NTSC, and component video input.
The component input is not mandatory - I just want to be able to input video from an Arduino or Raspberry Pi board. It is possible that it may be easier to use 3 Raspberry Pi's (one for each video monitor) but that seems over kill since the 2 smaller monitors are monochrome and only the main one is color.
If I can find B&W CRT screens with a 2.5" diagonal I'd be all set but I haven't come across any yet.

Great progress LBM on you bellow and small screens.

BTW I went for a 3/8" tube because I like things in standard sizes!

I've made a bit of progress on the graphics to the 2 small monitors, it's taking a bit of experimentation to format and send text, etc., to the screens through an Arduino micro-controller. Anyway, here's my results so far:
Left small monitor -


Right small monitor -


Comparisons to screen captures can be found at http://propsummit.com/viewtopic.php?t=2499&highlight=screen.

Still a few things to add to the display's, including animation and a feed of real time data.

Just want to say thanks to Joberg and Colin for feedback.

Colin, thanks for the reply on the extension rod – I have similar thinking on using “inch” sizes, my assumption was that what they had on hand in the early 80's in the US. I'm looking at some 3/8th inch aluminum rod and a matching black nylon bushing for my next tests of the VK arm.
