It's been a while as I have had to recover from a total foot reconstruction. I'm slowly getting there.
Anyway, I think weightweenies should not only be about bikes... :smartass:
I am an illustrator now and I'm prone to getting hand fatigue.
So I spent the evening tuning my mouse. And I thought I would show you all how it turned out:

I mean where else can I share this? Who would appreciate it? :lol:

That's cool, what modifications did you perform? Computer devices might be an easy target for DIY CF construction.

It has 3 steel screws replaced with PEEK ones.
the front 'wings' are unecessary and so they got hacked off.
There was black sticky tape inside there which all got thrown out.
A few holes drilled where it is not noticeable.
Some of the screws were replaced with superglue (I mean how likely is it that something goes wrong or to repair anything?) :lol:
One of the electrical wires did absolutely nothing so that had to go...
