I know. That’s up in the Blue Spruce Toolworks price range. I found 1/16” OD brass tubing for the divider sockets. That seems like a pretty critical component for longevity. The hinge issue is solved, and I’m confident I can accurately locate the brass pieces. What’s got me at a standstill right now is the lettering. I can order some of those micro markers with 0.2mm tips in different colors, but I have no confidence in my ability to do that sort of precision lettering by hand. I know I’ll need to put on several coats of finish first to keep it from bleeding, and hopefully that will give me some ability to clean off any mistakes. I need to practice on some sample boards, but am pretty busy with other projects.

If you make any progress on yours, please post it. I’ll do the same.
