RepolaRap Motor Mounted
The side pieces made out of poplar or birch -- I had it laying around in the garage. The two pieces are mounted to the upper radial platform using 3 cross dowel nuts. The motor plate is attached to it using 2 cross dowel nuts; my original vision was to use three but I didn't quite line it up right, and besides, with the bolts tightened, I think it will be okay. Even if it is not, a simple screw in the corner should secure it.
I'm going to try to wire up a single stepper driver, and see how effective it is at turning the table before I work on the other mount.
