This week, we dealt with more nuances problems in building the bionic drill arm and vacuum extender. we had solved a lot of big problems last week, and so now the matter was dealing with the unexpected.
The drill arm team began by working on how to get the drill trigger to be pulled remotely. The used a combination of parachord, eye hooks and wooden extenders to come up with an initial iteration.
After realizing the issue with the direction of forces being put on the trigger, they tried a new method and added a few more eye hooks
It's time to test it out!
Drill arm team keeps encountering problem after problem and solving them like pros on the fly! They use the chopsaw and drill press to get a bunch more pieces set up for next week!
Vacuum arm again was working in two teams, the PVC team and the backpack team.
Vac-pack team began making a skeleton for the vacuum to sit in.
Meanwhile, Noe and Lindsay began to mass produce flexible PVC connections using the jig that Sophie and Noe had made last week.
Noe uses a variety of tools to cut and shape the PVC.
