Thank you very much for designing this. It's a nice solution for a wall mounting system

thank you very much for sharing this. it is a wonderful design.

No problem, I had fun tooling around in fusion 360.

please let me know if there are any additional mods you want to make. I'll be happy to provide a Fusion 360 archive for you to work from.

The only change I would like to test is to see if a helical teeth on the shaft will make it less likely for it to get "stuck" at the highest point. I looked into how to make them within Fusion 360 and I'm just not there yet. I'm working my way thought a few courses on pluralsight for fusion 360. So who knows.

I took the time to create a helical gear version of the cap, large gear, small gear, and track.

They run smoother and quieter. But, I doubt they would affect your problem with the track getting hung at the top.

I'll provide the STL files to you if you want to print a set and try them out yourself.

Yes please, that would be awesome. I would like to try it out.
Thanks

does that mean there is a redesign of the gear?

i did design a set of helical gears, but do not intend to release them as I do not believe they are an improvement.
