2024-06-29 (Sa) GrinderCompassMKIII REV10 exterior cage changes

I revised the exterior cage to be narrower and taller and revised the hole pattern in the bottom for M3 bolts. I printed two copies at different heights, but the shorter version failed.

I ordered a couple of brass machine screw sizes, and the shorter version arrived first, but they were not long enough to reach from the bottom. I cut a length of nylon standoff to be a coupling nut and shortened two brass bolts to make an adjustable height stub under the magnet spinner. The compass should have worked well, but I got extraneous feedback constantly. I tried switching the interior cage, but my spinner would not operate smoothly. I may have to redesign and add metal parts to reduce friction.
