Just as well thought out as other projects on your site. All the correct elements are there. I'm sketching one up right now. It'll be larger but tool-less attachment is a great idea. An 1+" of travel is minimum. My spin; tap spindle 3mm for space blocks to achieve increments on snap rings, o-ring grooves, necking, chamfers, etc. I also use same blocks in a magnetic holder the same way.
