Great job! Awesome new dial! May I ask what the images are at the 5 k 7 positions? Also, what is the red oil you are using?
Thanks for sharing!

The tool at the 5 position is a special wooden mallet used by stone masons to shape stone. It is used with a chisel. Dont know about the thing at 7.

The handle should be straight. I think it is bent to not interfere with the sub dial

Topic moved, as it has no question.
JD, if you make these a little more detailed with step-to-step pics and descriptions I'll be happy to have them in "walk-throughts".

Ok, thanks. What about my video links ? From youtube that have a 1 hour walk through?
