Slow news day

Nothing exciting to report today.

On the fabricator, I briefly considered trashing the idea of wheels and channels in favor of rods and bearings to be salvaged from a few old inkjet printers. Two problems, though. One, I don’t have enough printers to get parts for both the X-axis and the Y-axis, and two, even if I had one more printer, the rods wouldn’t match in diameter or length. Thus the work platform would probably never be level, assuming I could even fasten the things securely to the base. I have another idea, a slight variation of the wheels-and-channels idea. Let’s hope that works.
