Great vid, and smart idea for fixing (for me) the #1-with-a-bullet annoyance of the mini-lathe. As always I'm am in awe of your freehand engraving skills.
I do wonder, though, if the first method would work better if softer brass screws were used? no notches in the steel.
Just wondering, given the wrong turns, how many times do you need to flip a USB cable to get it to fit? I myself generally need 3 or 4...
Thank you. Very nice work, especially the protractor. I am going to have to try this.
It is really funny though, I was watching a very similar video doing the same mod, literally yesterday, with less workmanship though
