    Tell me about the modified rotary machine you show at about the 2:18 mark. I'm searching for a way to cut copper disks about the size you show, with a hole in the middle -- kind of like a 45 rpm record. Sawing with a jeweler's saw is beyond tedious and doesn't give a very smooth product. That gizmo looks awesome!
