Lifting handle for the magnet rotor

I never like lifting magnet rotors into the mould.  The rotor for the 4F is very heavy, having 20 big ferrite magnets on a 50 cm disk. So I made a handle to lift it.  I had to make two of the holes in the mould base a bit big to accommodate the nuts on the ends of the handle studs.  Worked really nicely and not hard to do!
