Tongue Twister

I've made further progress on the tongue. It has a spring and the beginnings of a control mechanism. Here's a picture with the tongue retracted.



In this picture I'm extending the tongue by pulling up on the linkage with my hand. Eventually this linkage gets connected to a control lever on the headstick probably with a string and pulley mechanism.

Al: I'm always impressed with the amount of time and dedication you devote towards the various disciplines of ventriloquism (the art itself, performing, and figuremaking). Keep up the great work and thank you for keeping up this fantastic BLOG.
