      Hi,

      I am a novice to this field so am hoping someone could point me in the right direction. I have designed a foam cutter with swivelling wooden arms running in a channel in a fixed wooden arm.

      Currently using a sort of a flanged nut and bolt with washer to connect the arms but that makes the swivel action either too stiff or too loose and has a bit of play in it... how best do I connect the swivel arms please ( I am looking for a cost effective and yet an acceptable level of near play free and smooth swivel action)

      dimensions : each wooden arm is 3cm wide x 1cm deep (thickness)
