    Same coin from a previous post in this thread, but more on how it's constructed.

    Hmmm, sophisticated mechanism, parts, not to mention design and planning. Like trench art [artistic use of military supplies], a high percentage of hobo coins are likely created under better circumstances than their labels indicate.
    As counterpoint, a good deal of scrimshaw was produced 'on station' during whaling expeditions, likewise decoration of firearms and powder horns; in downtime concurrent with period of use.
    I'm similarly guilty, spending time on better spotfacing, radiusing corners, smooth countersinks, and consistent tool marks like flycutting or endmilling.

    Now I'm struck four ordinary terms collected red squiggles, that guaranteed occurred making this laptop.
    That a word programmer is blithely ignorant of. Hyphenating is not a spelling work around.
    In our "Shop Truths..." thread [Off Topic Forum], I commented it's thought ~750,000 individual words comprise English language [not differentiating, say color and colour].
    I'm absolutely positive, those 750k-odd all had their proper spelling decided long ago...

    I didn't; now what?
    Looks like someone programed a dot-peen marker, changed stylus to a chisel. The spindle is different though; makes up for a sluggish X-Y stage I guess.
