2024-06-08 (Sa) GrinderCompassMKIII Assembled

The tweezers I printed for setting the magnet were less helpful than I had hoped. When I tried to release the tongs, the tall walls around the magnet could not escape the dais at the bottom. I tried using one to hold the magnet from the top but I could not hold the axle steady while tightening the bolt from above. The spatulas were longer and more flexible than necessary, so they deformed. Everything was black, so finding a position where I could point a light inside the capsule and not block it while working was a nightmare. I got the magnet seated, but it took all evening. I am pleased with how robust the unit feels after assembly.
