it seems that the 5x5 siamese fisher did was missing components. His had to be missing the Center pieces, in the inside. I think you guys call it the cross piece.

He was missing these on the binding shaft, or, his siamese 5x5 wasnt bound together at the right size, too far a distance between the 2 for the sticekr spacing to be correct.

i will build one today, pictures by tonight.

I think that is the main reason for the two level overlap. One level is way too flimsy I would guess.

it looks it, but it is solid as a rock
But, to make it this solid, the column parts MUST be glued to the others in the same cube. My brother dropped it off of my desk which is 3 feet high (about 1 meter) and it landed at a most vulerable point. It did not seperate.

When using glue, get yourself some Low Viscosity Cyanoacrylate. The kind i got, heats up and melts the plastic together somehow. Actually gets HOT when it gets on your fingers. The brand i use is BOSTIK. i got it on ebay. 1lb for $25. retails for 90

If you use Thick (high viscosity) glue, the bond is not as strong in my experience. For thick, i prefer a Cyanoacrylate called MAXI-CURE. Most US hobby shops sell it. You can order some at http://www.mountainwoodcarvers.com go to paints and finishes, page 2.
