Immensely satisfying project!

Take your time assembling, make sure it all fits and the mechanism move smoothly before gluing anything.

Make sure all the holes and slots line up.

I found the tolerances pretty tight for my printer and I had to do some sanding and filing to get everything working smoothly. Hardest part was the lever - I ended up gluing in some thin shims near the post to make sure it was springy enough. But even so, very worth the time to understand how this kind of lock works.

Lever now updated to include slot in the pivot hole to accommodate the web on the pivot. see Lever-gate-3
