2019-07-03 (W) PillarGame

Instead of cutting the triangular piece away completely, it was drilled down with a 1 1/8" (30mm) spade drill bit. Drilling was done with a hand drill so the edges were not smooth and centered. This size was based on the 1" (25mm) diameter of the PVC pipe sticking out the bottom of the cylinder.

A rotary tool fixed the sides and centering using a drum sander. When the cylinder could rotate freely, the test program was updated to turn clockwise and counter-clockwise (anti-clockwise) depending on the position of a potentiometer. There were problems with the hardware until all the signals used controller pins capable of pulse width modulation.
