So I could a nice note from Royal Mail today asking me to pay £30.95 worth of "Customs charge", while that in itself is rather annoying, what I'm hoping is that it's the electronics finally getting here! We shall see.

Still no electronics

So a month after I got the shipping information the USPS page still only says:

Detailed Results:
Acceptance, April 23, 2010, 2:06 pm, BLACKFOOT, ID 83221

Electronic Shipping Info Received, April 22, 2010

Which is... %$^$ing annoying, to say the least. I've been rather busy lately so I've not had a chance to phone USPS yet, that's a job for tomorrow, I'm curious to know whats going on.

Mechanical construction finished

It's finished! Well sort of, I've not fitted the bed and I don't have any electronics yet but it's getting there. The electronics (or at least some of them) should be arriving soon, I got some of them from ebay so here's hoping they all turn up ok.  All that's left to do while waiting for more parts is add some thread locker in a few places.

I will try and post a video later so I can show how the various axis move.
