Default Raduis brake

I m building a radius brake and needs some help. I have alot of it figured out, but I have some questions on the adjuster mounting of the bearing. I'm going to use a take up bearing for the raising , lowering , and the height adjustment( thanks Metal Manny) the question does anybody have any clear pictures of the adjuster to do this? I think the adjuster take up bearing would have to be mounted at an angle to compensate for the different size radius bars ( 1" 2" 3" etc. ) am I correct that the bearing would have to be stepped back at an angle to to keep the radius bar centered over the follow bar to be kept in position to make the radius of the bend for the follow bar to form it? If I m correct in my thinking the bearing would have to set at an angle to compensate for the difference In radius bar size. Thanks in advance, Steve

never-ever kick a fresh turd on a hot day!
