This kit is for the old style of The Block (square grooves).
I used a digital angle finder and figured out what diameter of pins I would need to get various angles. This kit includes 6 rods. They are all 6" long so you don't have to worry about the block stability due to only have a 2" pin under it. These 6 rods will produce the following angles: 3, 2, 1.5, 1.0, 0.5, and 0.2 degrees
I also graphed this information so you can quickly determine what size rod or drill bit you would need to put under the block to get any angle inbetween. I'm including the graph also.
The drill bit blanks I bought to make my own kit came in 36" lengths. I made one set for myself and still had enough stock left over to make 4 more kits. So I have 4 to sell, Price is $10 shipping included.

Due to popular demand (well sort of), I made more pin kits for anyone else that wants one. There are several improvements:
• I previously tried shipping them cheaply in envelopes w/cardboard but that turned out bad (banana pins). So now I'm only going to ship them in the small priority boxes so they get there safely. •I'm also packaging them in a PVC pipe bomb looking thing. It makes for a nice storage container. •I'm updating the graph that is included, so the equation will be more accurate than the one I have posted on my website. •Pins are approx 7.25" long (slightly longer than the block) Price has to reflect the changes: $14.85 includes shipping. PM me for paypal or my address to mail a check either way is fine.
