Hello! I am new here and I have a bit of a quandary for a pair of brazing goggles I am attempting to modify. I would really like to attach a hammer from an old clock movement in a way to allow it to stay up and click down (so I can attach a crosshair or other such lens to it..) Here are some pictures to help explain:
The two parts:
The arm up, where I would like for it to naturally stay:
The arm down, where it should click into place (gravity is a major help in this position, all I need is a stop.)
Ideally I would love for it to make a ratcheting or clicking noise when changing positions, but I can't even figure out how to get it to stay upright without interfering with the "swing down" mechanism. I also don't have a lot of interior room to work with on the goggle eyecover so I have hit a major stumbling block on figuring it out. All of my soultions keep getting more and more convoluted... which I suppose isn't a bad thing, but I am certain there is a simple answer to the problem, I just can't grasp it.
