Day 5

Still waiting for the new motherboard.  Put the plastic spindle holder together and stacked everything up.  The connections in the box were the tightest so far ... I actually had to sand down the nubs before it would fit.  The design could be improved a bit, every time the spindle is replaced it will be about a 20 minute job to swap out the old spindle.  Also noticed that the servo boards power up when the stages are moved (the motors are generating current when moved), hopefully this isn't damaging the boards ;-)
