Recut PVC Foot Strips

Mike and I gave it another go today, recutting the strips of PVC that go around the bottom of the foot. The PVC sawdust gets everywhere. Note the adorable bunny suit Mike is wearing to keep clean.

Thirty-six more strips were cut (plus twelve backing strips, plus a few extras). The blueprints show different angles for the outer feet (12 degrees) vs. the center foot (18 degrees). We decided to go with what Mike did on his first droid, and cut all the strips at 12 degrees.

Later on, Matthew Henricks dropped by to talk frames with Mike.

Finally, apropos of nothing, the Goodyear Blimp Spirit of America buzzed me on the way home, so I took its picture. In fact, it's still flying around here, perhaps making practice landings at the nearby Tustin Marine Corps Air Station.
