On one of the sat night Zoom oldtools meet ups, I mentioned electric winding
strips that I had made to cope with older eyesight.
so here's 3 pix of it in action
The unfortunate camera was unable to focus on both straight-edge and illuminated
strip- 10' apart.
The need for this arose a few years back trying to align a dining table with
three leafs inserted, and it worked well, so it got pressed into action again
today.But I still could focus.
I know it's an 'lectron burner, but as eyesight ages, one is forced to used
I shall try and find the spittoon in the morass of tools
Interestingly, the makerspace I participate in has a 5x10' CNC router and I was
chastised for not using it to level the table, and I was politely chastised for
not using it, but it's only recently been put into commission and I have watched
several folks encounter FU's in operation, so my risk management sense said..
can't afford a single F/U to destroy the surface and turn 500$ of maple itno
trash- so it's hard core hand flattening- and my back feels it. That much maple
weighs about 200#
I never thought of that. Very nice. The glass looks familiar. Can you elaborate?
I do have a set of matched straightedge levels with scotchlite paint on one side
for dark-space alignment work. They'd probably work as winding sticks this way
with a light source right behind my head.
