Driving the gears with the small 12V motor didn't seem likely. Reasonable measures, like bearings and a high torque arrangement were taken but there was simply too much inertia and friction in the system. Finding replacement motors may be a good option.

 With mechanical building at a standstill, it seemed reasonable to move onto the control side of the project. The parts for the control panel were all arrange where they would be placed. This arrangement was decided at the beginning of the project but the parts were never physically placed until now. Thickness of the MDF sides makes it a bit difficult to mount things since they take so much internal room.
