Load Cell Mockup

The load cell came from China via registered mail, and it took three weeks or so to get here.

This load cell and its associated parts dictate the length of the aluminum channel part to which all the other pieces of the pedal assembly will be attached. So it's a critical part.

While we were waiting for it to arrive from China, Amos made a wooden mockup of the load cell using dimensions from its web page so we could verify the dimensions of the load cell actuator and associated pieces.

Here are some photos of the mockup load cell, actuator, and actuator pivot bracket, all pieced together with the pedal shaft and platform. This made us confident that the dimension we'd chosen for the length of the platform (9") would be long enough to accommodate all the parts.
