Here's some pics for you...
|1) Front, almost impossible to tell he's been taken apart and operated on.|
|2) The new elbow and motor-joint. Pretty sweet, but still needs a little touchups.|
The motor is functional and the drill is mostly centered. Centering the drill was the trickiest part since it vibrates like crazy when off-centered!
I think it turned out quite nice, the real hurdle will be to make it last for years without too much repair needed!
As a bonus -
The woodshop has finished making a sample piece of the playfield using the programmed route. I can't wait to get it!
