2024-05-25 (Sa) Grindfest badge assembly class

During Grindfest, I received a time slot early in the event when people could assemble their electronic badges. I set out all the components in the order they appeared on the Parts List. I expected to answer lots of questions about how to perform a step, but most of the time, I just chatted with people, and they reported that the instructions were very clear.

The two problems I encountered were a parts shortage and some laser-cut wooden motor mounts. There were only enough magnet mounts for sixteen badges, which fit pretty well with the table space. The wooden motor mounts were an old design that did not allow the spinner to rotate fully inside the enclosure. We made adjustments, and everyone had a working badge.
