The arm in details:

Picture1
Basic materials:

- PVC pressure Rings (yes yes! you read well...)
- Set screw stainless "machined" in points for the pivot
- Stopper of clock industry out of bronze bored very fine for the horological jewel and inserted in rings PVC
- Arrow tube aluminum for the arm
- the carry-cell "worked" in a piece of magnesium (1/3 of the weight of aluminium)

Picture2
The rings with assembled pivots and horological jewels, the tiny trick that you see on the right of the set screw is a stopper of clock industry (My grandfather was a clock and watch maker...)

Wire of flexible wiring and very end bought in a retailer of electronic component of my area (did it find any more the reel, nobody any more does not ask any him...) 1 ml = 1,5 euros
I on kept well only 4 wire for the cell + 1 to connect the arm to the mass.
