Thank you, Brothers.

 

'Looks like some real Optivisor-level work there!'

Indeed.  I used to use a 10x watchmakers loupe I picked up from somewhere.  But my nose kept getting in the way!

 

Small update.  The things you do for love . . .

Not so focused.  Oh well.  Attempted to make the inner door retraction arm a bit more accurately.

A nut will go on top of the brass eye.  Still have to trim the rod-to-D ring connection.
