Small Milling Machine mod

This was done some time ago but some may not have seen it.

I never liked the single lever when I used the machine for drilling:



So I made this:  :D



Very rarely one of the handles gets in the way but it's very easy to just unscrew one.

This is a fitting job,
not a production job that can be measured in.

How did Warco  :slap: come up with such a naff design for the handle?

Yours is a great improvement and as Marcello says the billiard balls give it a unique charm :Jester:.

Another option I've seen folks use are Golf balls - just not the liquid filled ones!  :naughty:
