When you need, function trumps beauty every time. Good job – thanks for the inspiration.

You said “not pretty but it works.” ...You should see the one I made, I zip tied 3/8” dowel rod legs to a cheap metal pencil compass- I didn’t even cut the dowel rod, I just broke it off, and the tails are still on the zip ties…yours is a masterpiece by comparison!
