    That's so awesome. I was thinking of purchasing a 3d printer. Your making the decision pretty easy

    My biggest concern is always the torque applied to this, but it looks like you have really done a great job with it! How are the magnetic paddles? Do they hold up well? I've seen some others that had lesser hinges and they tend to break there.

    Thank you, no problem with the DD torque, I have used one of these for 3 months now on my small mige, as well as button plates made by me in 3d printed petg, and never a problem.
    The paddles only once in 2 years happened to have to replace a switch (maybe it was faulty).

    Very good job.
    Did you start from 0 or do you have a design basis?
