Did a little more refinement work to the Exacto vertical mill, by finishing up the low-voltage control signal connection, and finally adding a speed pot.
There's now just a very few things left to do before she's 100% done!
Also, I have finally gotten my benches cleared off enough that I plan to put quite a bit of time this month into the next version of my new lever-action rifle project.
I just have a brief update as linked above, mainly making a rough and dirty prototype straight-wristed buttstock out of cheap pine, but it's a start.
I hope to have a complete Mark III by the end of the month, but just a complete gun is less important than figuring out and developing the last two key issues, which are making a reliable and fast-to-use loading gate, and figuring out the best way to integrate a 12-gram changer.
Stand by, I think this is gonna be a fun one.

I can't believe I missed this update. For a second prototype I think it looks real good. You've proved the function and caught a lot of potential bugs so to me it looks like it will be a fun little PB rifle. Kind of makes me sad it won't be mass produced, but at the same time there's probably only a lucky few who both can afford them and has the knowledge to appreciate them for what they are.
