I milled out the switch machines.

The servos fit like a charm.

I see you are using my method for mounting the servos :thumbup:
I hope you are NOT using my method for the mechanics :thumbdown: because it has a major design flaw but was the only way to fit these servos in the GuiTTarcase. The problem is, the servo motion is only a few degrees. This is usually not very precise. The mechanics should funktion like this: http://www.weichen-walter.de/produkte/w ... index.html
You gotta do much more than believe if you really wanna change things!

Hey, when learning I like stealing knowledge as often as I can. Thanks for the tip. :wave:

The way I planned it, the servo will move ~170° from one extreme to the other (±85° from mid-state. I have enough room underneath to have the servo arm pointing downwards in the middle.

You're doing the cutout in one layer of foam and then gluing it to another correct (otherwise I have no idea how the bottom of the cutouts is so smooth)?

I'd say he's using a router bit to route out the shape.

You are right Bernd. I use a Dremel on a drill-press stand and a straight router bit.

Since then CN-TT showed me another Dremel attachment that allows routing freehand (without a stand). If I can get my hands on an attachment like that I will be able to mill out the parts right on the module base - now the foam board is too big for my stand so I had to cut out the squares, mill them out and then glue them back.
