Great piece of woodwork. I just wish I knew what it did… or how to use it… oh well I’d do some research…

Great build. Looks like you have incorporated some new ideas not on earlier models. I hope you can share some of the details of the build process with us.Jim

Very nice job. Next, a video of it in operation? I have been curious about these things since I first heard about them several months ago.
