Head and Shoulder Plates Finnished

Stuart has finnished the first shoulder plate, a very complex part to make as we mentioned last week. All of the weight of the bot is carried through the big bearing, and then to the legs, through this plate. It's un believeably light.

The head plate holds the head onto the neck using the same large size bearing. The servo is responsible for the head turning movement via a mechanical connection with the servo horn, through the center of the bearing.

I don't anticipate getting a new camera for Christmas, so WYSIWYG.
