It's very Long TA extraordinary . and i think this have little error track than 9"

The next stage:

I made stand of Pivot to replace temporary wood stand from alum dan a long arm base from wood. the work has been completed.
to be replace temporary a wooden stand and base.
finaly: the stand of pivot + arm base can be adjustment for vta and distance.
the results are not perfect like factory-made, but enough to be used.
