Mallet head half inner ring add-on
I wanted to show you my newest mallet design and ask you what do you think about it.
Basically it just half of a 1cm wide PP ring screwed inside the mallet head, on the bottom part. It's not at all heavy, it adds power and precision to my shots plus, because the screw heads are 2 mm taller than the mallet head surface, they get the pounding instead of the mallet head, so that adds to the lifespan of the contraption. I used double bolts to make sure they will not unscrew, but I think this problem can be solved with a little loctite.
What do you think? Has anyone tried anything similar before?
