Very great Idea Phil. Iam curious about the result.
Reminds me of the Stompers I used to re-engineer in 7th grade in the 80’s. I still have a scar and there’s still a burn hole in the linoleum of my Dad’s kitchen when I melted the drive shaft screw to re-carve it with a higher pitch to win races in Middle School.
Really really good result, it looks awesome.
