Holy cow!

WOW that looks awesome. It's too bad you don't live closer to Phoenix, or vice versa. I would love to take that baby for a spin.

Hey Douglas, I'm not sure if you posted this already or not, but do you mind sharing how many hours you think invested into this project so far? I'm most curious specifically about production, not so much research, etc.

Hey Duane,
I would say the hours so far are in the hundreds.

Hi Douglas,

I wondered what your coupling looked like on the head axis etc. What sort of bearing assembly did you use?

I am currently designing my own MoCo rig.

Also, did you find the Phidget Nema - 17's to have adequate torque for swing rotation etc? Do you use planetary gear box ones, or standards?

Sorry for the bombardment of questions. It appears I have fallen into a rather deep rabbit hole with this new venture.

Regards,

Harrie
