I’m closing in on the design for the different parts of the coiling machine. Today I worked out the left home limit switch assembly, and glued up what I hope to be the final iteration of the carriage and carriage mount assemblies.
I took the back panel off the carriage slide mount because it just wasn’t necessary, and the delrin rods wouldn’t stay glued into their slots. I moved the enamel wire slot up, to accommodate another change to the carriage: I added the pulley to the front of the carriage assembly, eliminating the need for an additional assembly and simplifying the design. I also drilled the hole for enamel wire to feed through the delrin block. Lots of tweaks and small iterative changes happened.
