Chapter 5 - Exercise 32 Update 2


My motor, wheel mount, and other bits arrived today. As with most electronics ordered, there's no paperwork on any of it. I can figure out most of it, but the motor has two unlabeled soldering points... my guess is that it DOES matter which wire goes where as the motor needs to spin in one direction specifically... so... I'll need to revisit the Solarbotics website shortly and see if they have any documentation. Otherwise, The Internets will need to deliver!

I'm going to mark out the cuts tonight for the wood pieces that will make the shell. Not going for accuracy here, so I'll likely just use a handsaw and not flip the old tablesaw on for such small (and thin) plywood.

More to come...
