 i had a rummage and fawned sum plastic that will become the rotating device for the magnet i turned the out side diameter dawn to 38mm that's the sises of the hole that the magnet fits in to then i had to put a step in it to go threw the plate for the front then i needed to cut the slot out for the magnet to fit in to witch is 20mm wide by 7mm deep by hand this proved to be harder than expected once that was dun i had to put a slot in the front of the device this will be for the nob to rotate the magnet simple this time the slot is 8mm wide by 4mm deep i just cut the sides out then with a wood chisel cut the center out then made up a peace of brass that will be fitted for the nob and two stops putting in i marked of all 4 corners and drilled 1.6 then taped 2mm to fix the front plate on right More pics

Have your own make-over show. I mean it. I'd watch every episode.

Snazzy looking paint job, btw.  :headbang:
