Skeleton Ukulele and printer modifications update

Replaced the perspex sled on the printer with an aluminium one. The sled had the linear bearings screwed to it. The new one can be seen fitted to the printer.

I modified the mounting so it takes two fans. I figured that using Toms idea of a pancake stepper motor gave me a saving in weight I could afford to add it.

The skeleton uke will be a Tenor scale length the same as the Lanikai in this picture.

I'm not sure I like the new one or if the area where it will be joined will be strong enough it does seem a little small.

 My poor finger really copped a deep cut trying to shorten the ptfe tube which caused me to rip off the thermistor wire.
