2023-08-17 (Th) GrinderCompassMKII Spring-loaded feedback

I extrapolated my long wire design, bent a long piece into a hairpin shape, and secured it to the side of the compass. The last few millimeters hovered near the spinner so it would sit near the top bearing. I did not use enough wire because there was almost no movement.

To get more motion, I added a weight to the wire by soldering a #4-40 brass nut to the end. I had larger models available, but it seemed like a good choice to start. I hypothesized that the circular wire and erratic bending pattern would throw the weight in unwanted directions, but I still did not have enough mass to create feedback.
