27 October 2019, The Electric Chair
Sometimes I drive a project, and sometimes a project drives me. The Electric Chair is driving me right now.
I am enjoying the process of being creative…of having the right materials at hand so that I can move forward relatively quickly…and I am enjoying discussing this Electric Chair automata with others. The reaction that I get from people is interesting. Some ask me if Trump being our President is driving this effort. I’ll admit that I’m not being driven by Trump consciously…but unconsciously…who knows. I am extremely dissatisfied and frustrated with US Politics right now. Extremely. I wish folks could be honorable and keep their eyes on the important balls.
I’m in a good position right now with supplies being in stock in my studio. I’ve got things working pretty smoothly in terms of reordering things…of having things that I need to have. And I am working more efficiently in terms of time…not sure why. My hands simply seem to be working better. My hands seem to be creating better.
I ordered a couple of motors from China about three weeks ago. They finally arrived this afternoon. I’ll be able to place one of them into the Inclined Slide #1 test stand so that I can get this test stand working properly.
