Went out to lowes and radio shack today and spent some time with my wife... good times... also got to do a little bit of work on the laser and have some fun.
Here's a couple pictures of what I got done.
I mounted the power supply and got the wiring done to the buss. I decided to go patriotic with the wiring... red, white, and blue.... well not particularly, it was the only solid core, 14 AWG wiring that lowes had when I was there other than buying the romex and splitting out the conductors. I still wouldn't have had green for ground, but that's ok. I kind of like it... the only thing to remember is blue is black and red is green and besides, the color of the insulator doesn't affect the conductivity of the wire.
Here's another view.
I decided to put an upper deck above the electronics module to set the laser power supply on. I baught a piece of sheet metal at lowes for this. I will buy another length of T-strut from Misumi to support the other side on my next order along with some more corner brakcets and post-assembly nuts.
I made the power cord for the board out of 22 AWG stranded wire and twisted them together with a drill. The center post is positive as per the instructions. I wrapped the conductors in nylon webbing and heat shrinked the ends. I think it looks really nice.
Tomorrow, I will tackle running the wires for the motors.
