At this angle of opening the lid, it does not seem to put additional stress / torque on the lid to keep it open. It distributes the pressure to the handle. Not sure if this will be useful to anyone, or of it isn’t good for the machine, or if anyone has a smarter solution.
Or if you just need a Maui hook for anything else.
I haven’t trimmed the para cord yet.

Ok… back to making more ear savers…
So, how long before the lid won’t stay up on its own?
Also, is that plywood or natural wood? Reason I ask is that if I were to make it out of natural wood I’d want to make two with opposing grain directions and laminate them together. There doesn’t seem to be a good angle at which a break along the grain could be prevented with thin stock. However, plywood lamination avoids that problem right off the bat.
I used 1/4 in baltic birch. The lid doesn’t stay up for me. I wish it was adjustable, maybe it is and I am just unaware.
That could be very useful… thanks
Very cool to have a Laser with a strong left hook and a strong right hook. Especially when boxing ear savers. knock em out well!!
This is the only hook I recognize.
