The Base, v1.0

…and hopefully the final version, but only time will tell. I cut it out last night and fit all the parts. Behold!coiler-base

As you can see, I’ve marked where the belt will attach to the carriage, and haven’t attached the limit switch to the adjustable right-hand stop yet. I also haven’t made the other end of the spool holder yet. I’m also considering changing the 8mm shaft on the solenoid spool holder to the full size of the central spool hole, but I’m not sure that’s necessary yet. It would also mean making another new shaft coupler.

After the spool holder and carriage belt mount, the next step is to add the electronics and I’ll be up and running!
