I have found that if I feel obliged to get on with something that I
don't want to do, i.e. getting down to some illustration work, then
I will much more readily get on with lots of other tasks, hence
the recent burst of energy with KC1. I have got the rams, valves, regulator,
(currently being adapted at work), have welded up extra struts to the
chassis, knocked up a lift arm and covered the little fellow in lexan.
I've mounted the ball transfer units and even managed to negotiate with
M&P over the chains and sprockets (still haven't arrived though).
I have mounted all the electronics and made up much neater brackets
for the pot/servo connection. The current aim is to get a single ram
operating a lift arm, and maybe set up a surrender flag with the other.
I thought I'd have plenty of room but yet again it's going to be a real squeeze getting everything in, especially bits like the valves which are such an awkward shape.
We have also got the laser running.... photos to follow.
