No building this evening, just some organization and troubleshooting using some tips from our friends on the Forums, but we did receive a couple of deliveries! Click Back after viewing an image.
Our bearings order from VXB came in, bringing some 1/4", 5/16", 3/8" and 1/2" bearings, plus a bonus digital caliper, which will be handy, so we can keep one on the build table and one by Milly.
These were the contents of the first of three packages from Speedy Metals, who have some pretty good pricing on aluminium. The plate in front is 3" x 1/8" x 12" 6061, and will be used to make the weapon motor mount for Formidable Fustigator 0.9. The two rods are 1/2" 6061, and 1" steel tube (1/2" inner diameter) which will be the weapon shaft and retainer for the featherweight. The 6061 tube at the back will be cut to form the rounded rear wall of Nihilistic Naysayer 2.0.
The contents of the second package include a number of short pieces of 6061 tube, to be used for wheel covers and weapon caps for the featherweight. The two bars on the right are the teeth for the drum on the hobbyweight.
The third and final package contained a number of lengths of 6061 - some flatbar to make arm components for both the fairyweight and beetle, plus plow material for the beetle, and the round is for axles for the beetles too. Not a bad haul, and it certainly came well packaged!
