|The sides of the bread pan either rub the arm or the servo on the claw. The next step will be to attach the front skin and see how this alignment works without the breadpan.|
Meanwhile, I wanted to get the cpu interface arm dismantled so I could examine it...
Here you can see the original setup i had using plumbing pieces. In the foreground you can see the linear actuator I want to use.
It took a few good tugs with a set of pliers to get all the plumbing and tubing I had inside the cpu arm.
Next it was time to visually size everything up. It looks like once I hollow out the cpu arm a bit to fit the actuator, everything to go together fairly smoothly.
The trick, of course, is making a square piece fit in a round hole.
Always a challenge, this one.... (Yoda voice)
