This one's about the base again.
I may have mentioned earlier that I was going to have to stiffen the base, since it had so much flex.
I was trying to decide how and where to mount the aluminum U-channel that was left from the neck, when I realized what it's actually for. It's for cladding the sides of plywood sheeting. Problem solved!
And, luck struck once more, since the pieces are just the right size:
Next job was mounting the 2" casters in the rear. Start off with a bunch of holes in a small piece of plastic:
Then mount the casters to the plastic piece and drilled the 2 3/4" holes:
And then, there's not a good shot of the casters bolted to the base. *shrug*
Next I mounted the electronics board to the base:
When I put the body on, the electronics board was too high, the inset panels of the body hit the board, so I had to lower it by 3/4".
Here's a shot of the clearance when the whole thing is put together and on the floor:
Next up: The giant head begins!
