Mill: Z-Axis Handwheel Handle

The fine feed knob on the mini mill makes it difficult to smoothly lower the head, which is important when performing operations like boring. Since I had a handle left over from installing the leadscrew  handwheel on the lathe ( I drilled and tapped a hole in the existing knob and installed the handle. Now it's much easier to consistently feed with the fine feed knob.

Handle installed. Um...just ignore that other hole...
