2024-03-14 (Th) RADARBadge Motor mount and PCB wrench

The motor mount panel had to fit the gear motor, batteries, and a couple of zip ties to tame the wires. I had the basic shape, but it was too narrow to fit the battery holders comfortably. The far right hole extends like a pimple.

When I installed the bolts during assembly, I could get the nuts pretty tight with my fingers, but not everyone may have such an easy time, and adding a proper wrench to the BOM seemed wasteful. I measured one of the nuts, which was 5.4mm flat-to-flat, and drew a simple tool that should be inexpensive for the PCB manufacturer to make.
Not the prettiest PCBs I have ever made
