bravo

Nice work! - as was said earlier it's super strong and shouldn't give you any problems for a while. I'd keep an eye on that air coupling. I like that it does double duty, it's a quick-disconnect system and allows for twist in the linkage - but they do wear. I use a lot of pneumatic tools in my shop with these fittings and they occasionally go bad from normal use. I imagine it's getting more stress with this use so it's worth extra attention. I came up with something like this early on when I was developing my trailer and solved all the motion problem with bolts and nylon washers. It's not as strong but it's held up well and was inexpensive.
