[T] LCD-down mounting

A project log for Tetrinsic [gd0041]

A continuous, motorised fader that is force sensitive and haptic.

It seems I forgot to add the project log where I mention that I had an idea to have magnets under the LCD so that they could be mounted on the #Tetent TimerSpy [gd0136] screen-down. There'd be another set of magnets such that the distance between both of them is only the screen thickness appart. The magnet calculator gave 2.3kg of pulling force from 2 sets of 30 x 3 x 5mm rectangle N35 magnets, which is likely more than enough considering I could probably fit those magnets in a single Tetrinsic. 

The result is that the design becomes much more streamlined, LCD protected and a pocket doesn't have the potential to catch on the ball chain or the edge of the cutout wall. I also might get a few more mm's for the PCB.
