A giant, gas-filled, floating EGG! Actually, just an update on a rather more humble endeavor.

I've been very quiet on the update front for the last few pandemicked months. Have I been pandemicking? Yes! Have I been idle? Oh no :)

Do you have details on the knobs or where you get the metal fitting? I seems similar to my Profitec 700's knobs but I don't know for sure. I've wanted to find some wood ones or just make my own wood knobs but I can't find any information.

With all the time at home from Covid, surely there is some updates?

I am rather doubtful that the handles would be the same between my design and the Profitec. FWIW, I have the metal fittings manufactured for me with CNC based on my prototype and drawings.

Oh yes, while I've been Coviding, there has been plenty going on. You can see the big-day from last week here.
