Build A Center Finder For Small Round Parts

 If you are into building small models or anything else that has small round parts, there always comes a time when you need to find the center of a small round object.  I have designed a small Center Finder that will find the center of any round object between 1/4 and 1 1/2 inches, or between 1/2 and 3 inches with the large size.  
Yes, I actually designed and build this in two different sizes.

  Center Finder Is Milled From 1/8 Inch 6061 T6 Aluminum  

It is very accurate, and easy to use.  Hold against the open angle on back and using a fine point scribe, scribe a line across the part. Turn the part 90 degrees and scribe again.  The scribe marks intersect at the exact center of the round piece.
