It’s a slow week on the job, so I’ve been doing some work on unfinished projects.

Since I lugged the damn thing out to Seattle, I feel somewhat obligated to put some effort in to getting the robot arm up and running. I’ve been reading a bunch about PIC microcontrollers and motor encoders, and once I get a voltage probe, I’ll start mucking around with some electronics.

Matt’s drawer dividers are coming along. Considering my lack of a workshop, I think they’re coming along quite nicely.

I’ve made a bunch of progress on the light machine – it’s completely functional now, but doesn’t look too pretty. I’ve gotta make some new sheets of patterned cellophane and paint or stain the outside of the box. Maybe it’ll be ready by the holidays?
