I trimmed four shish kebab skewers to the same length and plugged them into their rod ends. I learned that the bamboo was hardly uniform, so some of the plastic pieces split. There was no trouble installing the bearings.

When I connected my hinged arms to the motors, I doubted my judgment with the rod length. I modified Arduino's "knob" example to control a pair of servos from two potentiometers. The long sticks bent more than I would like, but that may improve when I add strings. I shot some rudimentary movement video, but I didn't connect to a computer for feedback.
