The dovetail tongue and groove design was inspired by the Simple Spool System for Makerbot thingiverse.com/derivative:5005 I wanted to be able to switch out parts as I improve them and to avoid absolute positioning.

I used the nifty Pololu Micro Maestro x6 servo controller and 4 AAA batteries to get things moving.

The legs in my design are a little too long: my middle servo is getting a lot of wear. It works best with the front and back legs spread in a V shape (X shape?) and everything needs to be balanced. Also, the holes in the servo arms need to be drilled out and carved to fit the servo gear. Friction
wasn't enough to hold mine in. I had to cut apart the arms that came with my servos and weld them into place.
