From owwm.com forum thread http://owwm.org/viewtopic.php?t=48388 by Gerald Buttigieg aka Afric-arn-a

I thought it worthwhile to somehow piece together the drive train without the main body parts which houses the gearing. To get them in some semblance of order and position, I made a wooden stand to support the various parts as they are to be found. For obvious reasons, some parts are now not indicated and these have been marked with an asterisk. I hope this will be of use.
