parts test...













Assembled some parts'n'wires and checked out the new motor controller....working better than expected.  One of the 3 gear motors I ordered cooperated with the effort quite well.  Just a few more tweaks and I will be ready for a "how to".  Break in the middle of the day - a tour for my new buddy Chuck Monson from Looziana.  For enquiring minds I am providing an underside view of my soldering prowess.  77,86,68, .03" overnight, B

Nice soldering job... I've been building guitar effects for 5 years and I still don't get it that clean without luck lol

also I love how the shot of the assembly has that "mars rover on mars" vibe.

Back in the 70's I worked for ITT Courier down in Tempe, AZ and did ALOT of soldering. You have a steady hand J flux W.

Some sweet work, John. Looking forward to the "How To" also. I want one of these!
Your contraption looks like it not only rotates, but also sweeps from side to side, with the long arm and gears.
I sure admire your inventiveness, and your knowlege and dexterity with electronic components.
Checking in on your blog is always an entertaining and learning experience. Thanks for all you do and share.
