I finished (almost) the point lever and installed it into the baseboard.
I even made a 15 sec movie of it in use. Unfortunately it doesn't seem to load. I will work on that but I did note that it dose have a nice positive click when operated.
UPDATE It seems that Blogspot can not host an MP4, so I've got a link here to my Photo bucket account if you want to see a 15 sec movie of the lever in operation.
