Thanks guys. The only reason I was able to get this far so quickly is because I simplified the design by not making it run. Maybe someday I'll have time to dedicate to making a real running model. For right now, this is better than those plastic models and my son loves to look at it.
The little electric motor that I planned to turn it over was DOA, so once that's replaced I'll get a video of it turning over. My instructor did say that he'd be willing to let me come into the shop after hours to keep working on parts if I need access to any of the real machines. Classes there don't start again until late September. We'll see how far I can get with my little Atlas lathe.
