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.

Constructing the case is a microcosm of what 183 CANVAS is about. Rather than taking the obvious and known route of building a wood box to hold our electronics, we went the unknown route.

The Hobby CNC kit has arrived and we have finished assembling most of it. Taking extra time to be as careful as possible, because our wiring experience is quite limited.
