2024-02-22 Counter Dials COMPLETED

Game counters are often discs attached to a front panel, and players turn the dial so the desired number is visible through a hole. I have not seen versions that use hands, like a clock, because that would imply it is a spinner. I wanted to try this design because I could add a second pointer on the outside, but unlike the kind with two wheels, this would take less space. I made two faces, one had a paddle on the left side to make it easy to hold, while the other was plain.
Counter dial draft

I added increments between the numbers so it is possible to track fractional numbers as precise as 0.25. I cut the parts from plywood and assembled them with M3 bolts I had on hand. I capped the bolt with an acorn nut. I should have used washers between the layers to prevent one hand from affecting the other, but they worked as intended.
