Compass Paddle Lug

Post by SheffSparky »

Hiya all
I was starting to get a bit annoyed locking the paddle in place on my compass, always seems to bit a bit fiddly while sat on the chair. So I decided to make another lug to hold the elastic in place. Very simple to make only using a small piece of yellow tongue, and heating it to bend it into shape and one drilled hole. I just unscrewed the existing one, and replaced it with the new one. All done in around an hour, and it makes life easier.

Just thought I would post it in case anyone else would like the idea.

Nice one Sean,
Simple fix for the problem.
