so that the entire weight is beyond the damper, but I can't imagine
doing that -- it's pretty slow already as it is, perhaps 10-12 WPM or
so. Swiveling it toward the finger pieces speeds it up more than I
want to think about, and that's with both a small weight AND a large
weight on it.
On second thought, maybe I DO need it slower -- 10 or so is
enough to make my brain hurt trying to copy it! <G>
