My Sun Chaser Blog – Team Meeting 22

The team has been working double time to get everything ready. One of the last jobs is to cut and carve the airframe so that all of the equipment fits securely. Three of the team’s engineers set about measuring positions for all of the equipment based on their design.

Measuring and marking is very tricky as the probe box is a cube with a side length of less than 200mm so there isn’t much space to work inside. Having already practiced with the different cutting tools on off-cuts the engineers had a good idea of which tools to use for each job.

Cutting requires a steady hand and the Dremel is a perfect tool as it leaves a smooth edge (if you use the right tools) and can be held with a pen grip for detailed work.

With exams looming most of the team will be revising. They’ve nearly finished the probe and the they have all trained hard for this. All that’s left to say is, “good luck to everyone for their exams!”
