So I just received an email asking me about Artoo's center ankle. I looked back and realized that I talked about it, but never actually posted any pics. That means this post should've been made in October 2009.  Better late than never?

I used 3/4" red oak.

That's the best pictures I have of the new 'battery tray' and how I attached the ankle outside of the frame.
Here's one or two of the ankle during test fitting, showing some of how it's mounted to the frame:

That's pretty much what I have on it, hope that helps a little.

And maybe one of these days I get back to working on K9.  There haven't been any updates, because I haven't done any work on him since probably August or September...
