    It looks as if one of the dogs even has IR proximity sensors in its eyes. To be feared, for sure.

    Can't wait to see more pics as assembly progresses!

    Bill,

    Thanks for the pics, now I understand. I do have a question, however. You said you'd chuck the rod and use a file to turn down the ends. One end is several feet away and none too stable,...

    Stupid tool question

    I feel like an utter fool for asking this.

    I read a lot about people turning down the ends of rods themselves and tapping as well. I don' t have any tools that can do anything like this. Should...

    Wow, it can be done! Yes, Virginia, there is a cheap CNC mill. This is inspirational to someone who has neither the money nor the expertise yet. Any idea on total cost?
