The first bushing has been completed and mounted on the prototype. The bushings are machined from Acetal.

The bushing was cut from tubular stock. In theory starting the tubular stock might have made making the part easier, but the ID had to be bored slightly larger anyways and machining the grooves in the side was kind of pain. If I stick with Acetal bushings in the future, I may switch to rectangular stock and make through holes for the bolts.
