Dear Nikos
I give you my own construction of the equal area axis based on vectors.
So you could compare it with yours.
Given 4 points A, B, A', B' such that line AB and A'B' are through point O,
let L+ be the line locus of points M such that:
Area(MAB) = Area(MA'B')
and L- be the line locus of points M such that:
Area(MAB) = -Area(MA'B')
where Area means signed area.
Then L+ is the line through O directed by the vector V(AB) - V(A'B')
and L- is the line through O directed by the vector V(AB) + V(A'B').
That's why the four lines AB, A'B', L+, L- are in an harmonic range.
