Fun with an old axle
I needed a hole punch for some shim material, so I ground down an old axle.
Later I realized I could try it as part of a noodle bender to create a better shifter noodle using parts at hand.
It's not working all that well, but it's a first attempt. Working with noodle tubing without a noodle nozzle I will be able to use two axles to support the tubing at various points as necessary. I found a nozzle-less noodle in a parts bin.
