2023-05-11 (Th) Grindfest2023 Electric knife upgrade

The electric knives had a severe flaw in the design because the battery fell out of the bottom in a few instances. The cap was only a friction-fit table leg end and not up to the task. I designed a device that would fit into the ends with screws on the side to hold it in. Each unit was a stack of wooden discs cut on the laser. Some were solid discs, and others had slots where I could install a three-millimeter screw.
End plates, discs, and screw slots

I cut enough discs for six knives, even though I own three. I considered painting the bottom, but I will probably leave them bare. I will install a countersunk M3 nut and bolt through the central hole to make a flanged cap.
