cradle jig

This will make binding spacing less math-centric! Thanks
I found the printing on the item was not crisp — and could be unreadable without the obvious numerical progression.
Unfortunately the packaging was a bit too flimsy for oversea shipping: the edge of the cradle broke through the envelope. The cradle did not slip out, nor did the other two items, but it was a bit disconcerting.

I was in a bit of a hurry when I ordered this. The shop owners were incredibly friendly when I asked for additional information! They offered me another shipping method that wasnt listed and explained their schedule to me so I could estimate the time more accurately. It arrived quickly!
The tools were packaged savely and and are as depicated, solid and stable, too!
