2023-09-10 (Su) GrinderCompassMKII Making a working wearable

I cut a new string to replace the one that fell out of the holder. I had to cut them long to tie a knot, and it was a challenge to get the knot equidistant from the center, where I had a brass bead. I made one version with longer sides and another like the original.
Old string and two new options

I installed the longer string and pointed the mounting beads outward to create a wider hoop supporting the center bead. I made the loop too wide because it touched the sides of the enclosure.

I want a method to secure the strings without adding precise knots and a wider enclosure.
Bead and bearing can collide
