  1. Hey Pete delete this comment…
    Just wanted to mention that it’s better to list stuff in reverse chronological order. It makes more sense to new people. Still looking for the tool that will allow me to create a member page. 😉

  2. Pete,

    I got to your site through a general search in Portland to find robotic help. I built a motorized couch and although the steering works I want to improve it. I am not an engineer and have been trying to teach myself, but am having issues with programming a controller for a linear actuator. I have the actuator a controller and the software they sent. Would you or do you know anyone who might like to help. I could compensate some for the time. You might also want to bring to couch to one of your events or something. My e-mail is for anyone who might be interested in finding out.
