Load Cell Actuator, Part 2

The load cell finally arrived from China, and that allowed us to confirm the dimensions of the actuator and the other parts related to it.

As it turned out, the dimensions of Amos' mockup load cell were perfect, so we needn't have waited.

Anyway, once we knew that the dimensions were correct, we were able to construct the load cell actuator fulcrum (see next post) and once that was made, we knew the dimensions of the slot that had to be cut in the load cell actuator.

Here are some photos of the finished actuator. Didn't Amos do a brilliant job?
