LifeTrac 5 Completed and sent out to New Orleans!! Will be writing a work up concerning lessons learned, issues with instructions, work instructions, build out etc. once we get our Dozuki page up and running... great content and great place to show everyone what we are doing AND allow them to interact and have some say in what and how we build things!!

Goals for Week

  • Complete Design and build of Spark Tractor

Goal Completion

  • Marcin was able to finish the Ironworker on Wednesday and have a proof of concept cut (AWESOME!)
  • Backhoe was not finished due to some serious issues with getting the pivot to align... great lessons learned though. Also, have the majority of it completed, approx one more full day and it will be operational.
  • Due to the Back Hoe we weren't able to begin the Microtrac. Have suspended the 6 in 60 for the moment to concentrate on making the Spark tractor a great finished product. Will continue at the culmination of the Spark Tractor.
