2017-07-18 (Tu) Pi0 Laser Tag PiTagErrUs

Yesterday, the masking tape was removed prematurely and it was impossible to accurately know where the center line was for mounting the handle and foregrip. Center lines were marked by reattaching the pipe quadrant finders and aligning the holes as well as possible. The lines were marked by lightly scratching the pipe with a pair of scissors.

Finding pipe center lines

Foregrips and handles were glued in place for three taggers. The shortest tagger had no room for a foregrip so it was built like it was going to be a pistol. There shouldn't be any parts located at the front of the tagger so it will be easy to grasp the barrel.

The longest tagger accidentally had a trigger hole drilled at the wrong end and the handle and foregrip were glued backward. It may be possible to mount everything in the top of the tagger anyway but this pipe may be unsalvageable. In this regard, glue is an inferior option since the process cannot be reversed.
