2022-10-07 (F) Weekly Summary

I revised the enclosure to secure with a couple of bolts, and it has legs to keep from scratching anything, but it will take more wood than the minimalist first version.
Second version of the enclosure with feet and bolts

I built a couple of the enclosures, and they looked great. I didn't like that the box was so tall that I couldn't add washers where the hardware me the wood, but that can wait until the next revision.
Enclosure REV2

I designed and cut a headphone holder for the underside of my desk. There is a central bolt, and everything is held with tension. The cord holders were too weak, so I didn't use them.

Years ago, I fantasized about motorized inline skates because none existed. I've seen one commercial model and some impressive homemade builds, but nothing seemed feasible at my skill level. I was looking for potential parts, yet again, and had the idea to use a motorized scooter wheel as the cornerstone and ordered a kit.
Starting parts

I drafted an idea of how the build would go. I'll use polycarbonate sheets for the frame and an interface between a Rollerblade boot and the plastic. The same concept should work for the motorized boot.
The boot sketch is a masterpiece

I used my laser to cut a cardboard template. The holes are all 1/8" (3 mm) because they're only for marking, and the sheet is 6" (150 mm) by 12" (300 mm), so I can get two panels out of a 12" x 12" sheet. I also made a template for the extruded aluminum that will interface between the plastic and boot.
Plastic, template, screws, and aluminum
