More machining -- new glass stand/rest

Today I finished milling the new glass stand for Thinbot, and test assembled it. I still have to wire up the switch and update the code to recognize it.




All the edges are chamfered to make placing the glass easier

You can see how stemware can slide in

New Glass rest for Thinbot

I probably don't have time to get it anodized before the show, but it looks pretty good in its natural silver.

Oh-- I also ran the pressure test on the heat exchanger now that it has had a chance for the sealant to cure. No drips after running it for an hour!
