So I haven't posted on here in a while, and honestly, hadn't used my router in probably over a year! However, I'm pleased to announce that it fired back up with no problems whatsoever (that I can remember). Anyway, I've been a little obsessed with building a StrandBeest, and after attempting to build a much larger one (actually two) decided to instead scale it down using my ZTW 7x12. You can see more about the process and results here http://www.jcopro.net/2015/11/02/strandmaus-now-fully-walking/.
It's been fun, but I'm working on a new model using MDF and a different gearing system. Should be much more reliable!
