When all the set-screw models finished printing, I installed them to the servo and added bearings. Unfortunately, the movement wasn't reliable because the motors would fight each other, and the hinge with the magnet puck would bind up and seize all motion.

The best motion I saw with the most reach was when I had long rods installed on the servo motor, and the puck hung between them. When I use short rods, the puck is pushed up between them. With long rods, I need to be careful about how much they can bend. I revised the connectors to hold two skewers, which may be strong enough for the new design.
