Looks good. It'll lookbeven better once you've ground it all over.
Thanks for adding this information. I'm sure it will be useful in helping others to make their own on a 3D printer. It looks great in the photo. My only reservation is with you using a screw at the fulcrum point. The original design requires a close fitting pin. The fit with a screw may allow for movement at this point, altering the accuracy.

Wow! That looks amazing it is a great feeling when someone else has made an instructable. It looks amazing! I

Thank you dustee1000
Another member has suggested to put in a spring to keep on the tension the parts. This seems a good improvement, and will solve the problem you have raised. dustee1000
This is an error in the instruction. I will amend today. The round bar is clamped in a 3 jaw lathe chuck, and clamped into the milling machine table, with the end of the bar pointing up and the profile is machined into the end of the bar. It is then parted off on the lathe. I hope this clears up this problem for you. dustee1000
Thanks for the tips. Everyone of them is worth adding to the AnglEase. I'm sure the would be room for the spring within the slot at the pivot end. I didn't consider engraving a zero position onto it, but it would be a definite indication to show it will be parallel in the closed state. I did consider milling a pocket to store the setting piece so it wouldn't get lost. I'll leave that to the individual if they want to do that. dustee1000
Thanks for your comment. You have a valid point about locking the setting piece in place. The location in the radial grooves on the top piece is very positive when in position, and does hold itself in position very well, and has no tendency to want to "pop" out. If i was to make improvements in this area, I would make a 8mm peg, press fitted into the bottom of the setting piece to travel inside along the 8mm groove in the bottom piece. dustee1000
That is a great idea, I will look into adding it into the design, please show your support by voting! 👍
Gis DonThe Diameter is 10mm. On the drawing it states 5mm radius. It would be great to see your finished AnglEase. dustee1000
Thank-you.If you make one yourself, I would love to see photos of it. dustee1000
You're welcome. dustee1000
Thank-you. I'd be glad to help if you have any questions. dustee1000
