Hi Dave!! Thanks so much for the comment!!
Here's an update for you all!! I moved to south Orange County (back to where I used to live for 15 years in California. I've had 2 neck surgeries in the past few months. The Tricorder molds are finally finished (THANK YOU STEVE!!!!) and I've begun to get prototypes built. I am running into a little problem however. The main body casting didn't come out exactly as planned so I'm going to re cast a new one to see if I just messed up in casting the first one. Despite the possible defect in the main body casting, the mechanism DOES WORK but needs to be tweaked a bit (I may have to cast the lower body in regular polyurethane rather than 1630 like the main body due to a weight issue.
Other wise the project is back on track! The electronics (THANKS TO JOHN B.!!!) are looking amazing and we have a few BIG SURPRISES in store for you all!! Keep watching this thread for more details later!!
I'm sorry I haven't been around for a while but between the move in January and the 2 surgeries I've been a bit busy!
Keep watching guys!!! I promise a great 1st Season TNG. Tricorder is coming!!
