19 June 2020: Peddler #1 is coming to life
The #1 of any series are revealing…both the strengths and weaknesses of what I design and build become apparent.
An example of a weakness: I did not have an hour meter in stock when I created the base. Then the hour meter arrived and I find that I should have created the base 1/2″ higher. I worked it out…but next time I’ll leave more room.
An example of a strength: In the image you see the cream-colored product spinning table. It rotates counter to the direction that the biped travels in. It rotates slowly. All in all the motion is both attention getting and relaxing.
Peddler #1 needs about two more weeks before it’s completed. It’s a good one. As I complete it I can now allow my mind the freedom to start designing the next product spinning automata.
I’m not sorry that I posted (what I did) last week. I’ve spent a lot of this week wondering what I can do that will make a difference. I cannot really think of anything beyond what I’m doing. I just need to accept things and relax.
