While drilling out the above, to add magnets, I had an oopsie moment. The drill bit in my Dremel bit into the metal resulting in a RUD event (Rapid Unscheduled Disassembly), which will teach me, I guess?
The pieces flew every which way.
As you can see, I glued the magnet in the center bottom section, mostly
because it was something to do in between hunting wide and low for the
parts that flew off at a rate of knots.
Eventually I found the other missing parts. Rather than reassembling everything back together I thought it would be easier to repair, and then reassemble.
So, I fixed the left leg to the base, and the right to a piece of wood to make it easier to handle. Then I started re-sculpting the damaged castings. I have a lot of work left to do.
And, now I've run out of magnets, doh!
It never rains but it pours. My stupid fault, I miscounted the ones I had because I didn't check the sizes. I have a selection of heights and widths (3x5mm, 4x4mm, and 4x7mm), and mistook the 3x5s for 4x7s for some insane reason.
That's all for now. Catch you all on the bounce.
