moving into systems
I know I am supposed to be building a motion controller, but this is the first steps, and pretty neat on its own. I will use two mutilated pinions to drive the diamond beam in a reciprocating manner and try to time it to kiss the diamond chunk on the large gear. However I have yet to test either of these two steps and have absolutely no experience with timed motions, taking more of a let-her-rip approach in the past. I still need to work out the numbers, not tonight though.
Also, I am getting some errors with my mail service. If you were expecting an email from me and didn't get it, let me know.
