I realised that my eyelet punch did not have sufficient jaw size to construct the original At plans so decreased it so the jaws would fit. I know I could have used a push pin with the bendy legs, but if I was going to the bother of laminating I thought an eyelet would be more durable.

With the size of the "Mini Crux Clock" I thought it would more likely to travel with me as it fits into my belt kit.

Below are the images of the project. I did two on the one piece of lamination in case of mistakes. I also realised that I did dot have to bother with cutting the pieces out before laminating as I was going to have to cut them out of the lamination pouch anyway!

Weather permitting I will try tonight.DSC02368.jpgDSC02371.jpgDSC02372.jpg

No such thing as a dumb question! You can use it on a clear night to tell the time from the Southern Cross.

By the way I tried some of your home brew, excellent stuff!

Thanks Thrud, I see the light in the darkness. hahaha

Glad you like it. When I get the next brew bottled, I'll make sure you get some as well. :_sii:
