So I have a bunch of set screws that somehow winded up loose in a tin. Is it wrong of me to think that it’s more efficient to write something to sort them via computer vision and automation than to do it by hand?
Hot dusty dirty day of drilling holes in concrete. They always need to be a little deeper than you think. 6 holes for the lathe, 2 for the mill. Other than that, not much happened on Monday.
Nerds came over, helped me finish up the tools, spent a lot of time helping me shop for lubrication. With the following result:
Very pleased! Robot axles ahoy! To Star Wars afterwards, with even more nerds. It still doesn’t suck.
Shopping for bolts to bolt the mill down. Small bolt/hardware stores with $25 EFTPOS minimums are dangerous, it cost me $50 to make up that $25. Still:
Brass machines beautifully. Did I mention I bought a lathe?
