While finishing up the wiring for the control box, we miss wired the on/off switch and then broke it in the act of fixing the wiring. Luckily radioshack carries a lovely collection of switches!
The next day our Transformer arrived in the mail and we were able to finish the wiring of the control box(with new on/off switch). We plan to try our first motor test this week. Hopefully a video showing a successful test run will be up in a couple days.
