I took the final designs down to Plasticare on Monday, and have been waiting for a quote before they formally get started. Caled yesterday and Randy is out sick, so the project is on hold. Hopefully it can catch back up because i just took a week of vacay mid-february to find time to finish building the device.
Also, i started practicing soldering, and i sucked at it. went and got some alligator clips to help hold things down and hopefully make it easier, and also switched to rosin core solder. both these steps help immensely, but i still have some practicing to do before this becomes easier.
