Good work, man!! Looking forward to seeing the process!!

I'm going to have at it as well with files and a drill press when I get all of my workshop gear about me as I think you're right; basic skills and an awful lot of patience will get the job done!!

You guys must have an impressive workshop! Mine is mostly limited to a little cardboard box with a few pliers, screwdrivers and old scraps of sandpaper Embarassed

But one day I am confident I will have a house full of guitars, and a garage full of motorcycles and homebrewing devices (and faraday cages and switch cleaner too).

Looking forward to seeing this string claw!

Always thought it was cruel to keep animals locked up in cages - let your Faradays roam free.

Funny you mention that because Faraday sounds a lot like the French word farfadet which happens to be some sort of fairy or flying leprechaun or something. French-speaking school-kids will always talk about the "cage de farfadet" when studying Faraday cages. Interesting stuff huh?
