Bit of background.....

Been using the MK I for a while and like it...It mostly runs macros.....

But the thing that was pissing me off and maybe a little OCD was the buttons would not stay straight.....

► Show Spoiler


Plus a reconfiguration was needed as there were a lot of buttons I did not use or did use but were in the wrong place.....

Like the buttons at the top here......Why not move them to under the other set on the riser.....

So MK II begins.......

R.I.P Mk I

Blinding excellent start.......

Cut the wood etc.......

Started scratching my head......Hmmmm not matching up.......All measurements are out.......

WTF.......

Well they would have matched up if I was using 5mm ply.....Like I thought...

But I'm actually using 8mm.........D'OH :oops:

What a fecking eejit...... :roll:

Measure twice, cut once!

I feel your pain my friend. But somewhere along the line, we all made a similar mistake. :)

A bit more done today......

Top panel cut.......Back panel cut.....Side ramp panel cut and side panel support cut.....

► Show Spoiler


► Show Spoiler


► Show Spoiler


Only thing that might be a problem is the angle of the ramp......

I have raised it a bit to give me more room behind the bottom of the front panel......

But I have a feeling it might be a little too much and My thumb will hit it in play.......

Time will tell.......
