It was a pretty light day as a lot of people had a good amount of homework due tomorrow. We worked on putting the finishing touches on the carriage, and should be able to mount it once the plates are done. The pistons from automation direct should arrive Monday and we should be able to fully test the robot. The main thing we need to figure out is how to mount the sprockets for the 2nd stage chain run. We will manual mill them tomorrow and hopefully install them. I worked with Chloe on mounting the chain to the first stage by measuring out the hole pattern then bolting it to the carriage. We then attached the 4-40 bolts to secure it to the chain. We also installed the elevator gearbox, which unfortunately will require some of the electrical parts to be relocated which is a pain.
