The game is afoot!
Took the plunge today and invested in a an Arduino"Duemilanove Atmega328" and "Motor Shield" from adafruit.
Got a day's worth of CAD work done in Solidworks as pictured above. Salvaged some linear rails/bearings and a stepper motor from an old piece of equipment, so I have a platform to experiment with the Cyberdyne Hydraulic Control System once that's up and running.
Doubling the number of arduino's and motor shields isn't appealing to me at the moment, so it looks like I'm working with DC motors there. Speaking of which: I updated the wiki on the CHCS: http://objects.reprap.org/wiki/Cyberdyne_Hydraulic_Control_System
That's all for now.
