Finished Installing Servo Rods

Tonight I worked on the rod that will help open the top utility arm under servo control.

Recall that yesterday I drilled the hole in the arm slightly mispositioned. I had filled the hole with JB Weld, so tonight I sanded that smooth.

I drilled a new hole in the proper spot on the end of the utility arm. The blue tape on the drill bit helps me to drill to the proper depth.

I decided to try using another 1/16" drill bit to drill the hole for the paper clip, having broken the bit I used yesterday. This time I was successful.

The rod has been JB Welded into the hole, and is drying as I type. Barring any unforeseen problems, all that I need to do now is paint the arms.
