I built this in 2012.

This machine:

1) grabs the PowerPeg and spins it at 300 RPM

2) smoothly moves in a countersink from the right

3) removes sharp edges from the PowerPeg threads

4) ejects the PowerPeg

Low budget, but she's a beauty. Since the first production run we have integrated this process into another machine, so this one is retired.

It looks nice on my bookshelf. I have come to appreciate the unfinished look. It's like an art piece.
