These are the handles which bolt onto two necks and two bodies. They will slip over the double ended output shaft so I can rotate a neck and body at the same time:







Here is a body mounted onto the left side.








And the neck on the right:







I shot a short video but my image hosting site doesn't allow me to upload videos. Any suggestions for a free and easy to use hosting site for videos?
Youtube?

It's both free and easy.

Lol, sorry it was a sadistic comment. When I took the Martin factory tour several years ago the tour guide showed us the robotic arm in the buffing booth and shared a story of the one time it didn't have a good grip and the guitar went flying about inside the booth. When my elder son did that with one of my guitars not only did I get into the habit of keeping my guitars in their cases but I took to calling him "Chuckie."

No apology needed Neil. I just didn't know what you were referring too but now I get it. Thanks for the explanation.
