Slow Pace

Man, I got to get myself in gear!!!!!!
All I did today was work on 1 leg in the Undershoulder detail area.
It looks alot better now, I got all 3 layers of wood in this area to match.
I did discover one thing though. I thought my idea for bolting the legs on kinda stunk,
But I looked at a pair of A&A legs and they bolt up just like mine do, So I guess it's not to bad.
I did cut alittle deeper in the bolt area, But it's still not enough for the hub to set down.
So I'll get the vise for my Mill and mill the hub to fit.

I hear ya!!!! I'm taking a break tonight with all of the sanding, filing, and cutting. I got home from work and didnt feel like working on R2. But at least you did something! It was pretty hot today during work, so I will just relax in the air cond. and get back at it tomorrow. My Switches from Performance PCs will be here by then anyway.

Man you are ALWAYS updating..making mem look bad! You must have a very understanding wife (course having a baby makes things harder).

I'm going to try to get some work done on my R2 feet soon!

John, Tell me about the heat man, it's starting to get hot here again and the humidity gets real bad. Can't wait to see what you've done though.

Jason,
What have you got left to do on the feet?
And have you tried anything new with your Vex?

Well, I'm sure its a million times hotter there!! I was in Jacksonville once about 13 yrs ago to visit a friend that was in the Navy, and it was in July. Everytime we walked outside, it felt like your face was going to melt off!!! Its humid here right now, but, its gonna get alot worse!!! That humidity makes me worry about painting anything. I was just about to start painting the holos too!!

I wish we had that kinda heat sometimes. :P

MY feet just need some bondo and cleanup..then paint. Then they can be mounted. I have to be a little creative since the foot drive assemblies I came up with kind of stick through the foot. Most of it will be contained in the battery box, but at the back I will have some open area..I was thinking some soft white plastic to cover a couple spots. I know it's not perfect, but it should end up looking ok (I HOPE).

No progress with Vex... :(

John,
Get a humidity gauge and it will help you decide about painting.
Yeah the heat gets to you sometimes and it can really make you hate living here.

Jason,
Do you have some pics of your foot drives?
Calvin

I'll get a couple and show you! Don't laugh at my not too perfectapproach. I pretty much left the scooter drive intact and added a couple things to make it work as R2's feet. Ill email u a pic a bit later.

Calvin Thomas said...

Cool, I'd like to see the setup.

Sorry man..didnt get a chance. My mom was in Emergency then transferred to the ICU yesterday. She's having some seizures...they can't figure out why, but she's hooked up to a bunch of machines helping her stay alive.

I hope today goes better!

Calvin Thomas said...

Man, I'm sorry to hear about your Mom. Please keep me updated on her health.
I don't know what to say,
God, Please make her better.
She still has alot to give to her family and friends.
And she's so needed here on this earth.
My prayers are with you my friend.

Thanks man! They still don't know what is wrong, but she is very weak and hooked up to monitors still. She does have Multiple Sclerosis very bad so I don't know if this is related or not.

AT least she is breathing on her own now. They are transferring her from ICU to a cardiac ward to monitor her heart now.

Appreciate your kind words man!

Jason

Man, That's better than the 1st email you sent me.
Them dam doctors need to get this figured out and solve the problem.
Sometimes those doctors make me mad!!
Keep me updated, I'm worried about her.
