Getting Everything in place!

We spent some time measuring, sawing and drilling the motor into place. Its a bit crude right now, but we came up with a mounting scheme and will have to get a few more rubber washers and lock nuts, move around a couple of the pieces of all thread, but it looks like the method we have for mounting the motor will work!

We basically have 4 pieces of all thread mounted into the chassis that the motor is screwed to. We then just pulled the all thread through the top of the shelf and isolated it with a rubber washer on both sides and then mounted the other end to the chassis. This allows us to adjust the height of the motor and spindle as well having complete flexibility to make sure it is straight.

It needs work, but is really close!
