My second option is this which I'll probably end up doing.  Seems the shaft isn't ferrous so I can just use a magnet ring to make the cap removable.

Been trying different things, techniques before I do the neck.  Built all my jigs, got my supplies now.  Here's my prototype compound radius jig.  12" to 15.5".  Reason for the weird 15.5" is I wanted to be equal the ratio of string spacing.  In theory its the right amount of radius for my nut to bridge width change.  If anything it was challenging.  Remade my lathe jig for my knobs too.  My old one didn't work for how small they were so I made a new one.  Here's a pic of the compound radius jig.

sorry I've been away for a while with work.  Working on my project has been slow at night but I'm getting pretty far into it now.  I guess the fast forward version of the project is everything has been going pretty good.  I think a lot of it is I has to do with having time to think about whats next since I'm doing so little at a time.  I did change the electronic setup.   I"m going to use a 10 position freeway blade switch and a push/pull pot as a kill switch.  I'll be using that pull function like a standby switch.

My knobs did not turn out the way I had hoped with the sleeve.  I think I'll perfect it on the next build but honestly I just wanted to move forward with the guitar for now.  I do have a plan for the future but for now I made some mahogony knobs with the same gold mother of pearl inlays on top.  I'll paint those knobs most likely black with the color scheme.
