Not much progress lately... Had a motor lined up and guy flaked.

I know where a ls style "mock block" is so may use that to go ahead and get it rolling here after KOH.

Threw seats in for a little inspiration :jester:

That stinks. That is the kind of thing that happens to me and really slows down my project.
