Had some extra material kicking around so I decided to make one of these up. The weight slides for force adjustment. I drilled and tapped through one of the welds on the weight and when I get a 3/8 bottoming tap it will lock down at the location of choice. Cheers

Thanks. I initially wanted the thing able to balance on its feet. For a stupid party trick. When it came to gluing the feet on, I didn't feel like taking the extra time. So with the weight all the way back it still sits on its nose.

Still need that 3/8 bottoming tap (should have tapped then assembled) but here it is in its mostly finished glory on the messy bench in the messy shop.
