Adjustment to Dome Rotation Circuit

There was one lingering problem with my dome rotation circuit, the piece of PVC that I use to sense when the dome faces straight forward ran into the dome controller wheel when the dome faces straight backward.

I used a thumbtack to scratch the outline of the inner diameter of the Rockler bearing onto the PVC.

Then my good friend Mr. Dremel removed the excess material.

Of course, this means that my sensor switch no longer reaches far enough to make contact with the PVC.

I adjusted the location of the roller switch, and now everything is good. The PVC clears the dome controller wheel, and makes correct contact with the switch.
