    I am designing my own Charpy impact testing machine and I am unsure what would be the best as well as relatively simple and affordable method I can use to accurately measure the angle the pendulum travels after it has broke the sample. I would also appreciate any complex and more expensive ideas too that I can consider, accuracy and reliability are the most important things.

    I have thought of some methods but a lot of them will cause friction against the pendulum which could over complicate the final calculations.

    For anyone that is not familiar with the Charpy method here is a link to a brief description:
