I wasn’t happy with the “hurricane” nuts on the Holy Roman Workbench. So I sat down with a compass and French curves this morning to sketch some new nuts.
Those weren’t working either, so I put away the drafting tools and just drew the dang things on a sheet of scrap paper. Sometimes I get too deep into decoding something when the simple solution is three quick lines on a piece of paper.
These nuts are much more presentable. Though they still look like hurricanes.
The photo above shows them in a partially finished state. I didn’t want to take them all the way to done until I was sure that these nuts were suitable.
My afternoon is shot because of this rework, but at least I won’t see ugly nuts in my dreams tonight.
