Great question, and criticism is always welcome.this is curiosity not critism. Master; in post 54 if you reverse every second one and lay them out "tight" to each other, would it not save a lot of cutting ?
Good point.I'll keep that in mind next time.That is why I put "tight" in quotes. Meaning as tight as your abilitys to cut allow. A long time ago I was a machinist, my disgust with the union enviroment caused me to walk away from the trade .I was young enough to believe the whole trade was that way, i didnt know it was just were I worked.

If you look at the last pic you will see the return spring.Jake , the cable on the prerotator appears to pull the wheel away from the drive plate ?? How do you engage it ?
I went back & looked closer........I see what you did..Duh !!
Is there a return spring to pull the wheel back ? Or just the one on the pull cable ?
