    Oh yes, also when the paper was here today I made a small error, I told the bot 0,0 was at the center of the table and then a ran a part that told it to jog 60 more inch in the x and I let out a big $hit when it hit the prox at 20 ips.

    And it was all on tape (hope that does not make it into the story)

    Default six legs

    I thought the PRS had six legs... ?
    The decimal point seems to be the most important on the z axis... x & y not so much....

    The blueing will last pretty good I imagine that if you spin the bit you would have to redip but its pretty tough. Expect some scratches and wear but readability is key.
