ThinBot progress -- two more pumps...

Last night I got pumps 9 and 10 wired and mounted. They will cantilever off the back of ThinBot's frame to be less obtrusive.

I didn't have time to do a fancy vinyl mask on these plates, but I did do some simple masking with tape and sandblasted the edges.

Auxiliary pump mounts

Pump 9 is the last of my ANKO precision pumps (the rotor and tubing are not installed)

Pump 10 is one of the original aquarium dosing pumps from BarBot 2012

I also got a 5.5V current source wired up, on the off chance I get a servo for the arm installed and working.

I'm planning to put the whole shebang together tonight to make sure it all fits :-)
