I think I should, for the record, point out that it was assembled when you received it. Now get to work! :lol:

Never having done a scrap build, im not used to being "sloppy" so that it fits the moniker 'scrapflex', so i had to start thinking not like myself in order to come up with a couple ideas.

So, i found some scrap and made a plan! Vacuum molded plastic makes a very sturdy material to use in many craft type scenarios. So, i found some i had laying around and cut a couple strips that could be placed into the tube pieces and used to shim the difference between the outer and inner tubes. Works perfect...

Following the theme, ive decided that aside from the one hole i had to drill with the press, i will only use hand tools.

The larger hole is the one drilled with the press

So that the switch wires will go through
