Since i got back into town today after a little vacation of makers faire and visiting the family, I decided to come into the shop today to work a little bit on R2D2. First thing i did is checked to see if those CAD parts that i sent in during finals week were done, the order got misplaced so unfortunately i will be waiting a bit longer for those. The staff is also cleaning out all of the storage spaces so there is not as much room to work today. What i did manage to accomplish though is drill 2 holes in the utility arms, getting some 3/16th in metal dowels and drilling 1 of the 2 holes in the side of R2D2 for the gas pipe for the legs. Again i ran into a problem where the hole saw that i was going to use for the gas pipe is a bit to big for the power drills that we have. I will probably end up using a spade bit to get the correct size hole needed tomorrow.
