LR3 survives falling roof

Snow’s not bad. It’s when it rains on top of the snow. That sucks.

My 38+++++° ambient is crying seeing all that snow

I think I am back in business with a fixed Z stub. Or I would be if I weren’t going for a minor upgrade.

All the electronics were hanging on board that had a janky mount onto the back strut plate. It had also fallen off and I could probably reattach it but it really needs a better mount.

So I’ll re-cut all the strut plates from 1/4" mdf this time (instead of 1/8" hardboard) and plan a bit of extra height on the back to mount the electronics directly.


Will be good to see that machine back in operation.


I am thinking I don’t need to replace the front and bottom strut plates. It feels like a lot of work for minimal benefit.

But I love this new back plate. Now I have plenty of room to mount everything, and I can fashion a dust cover too, whereas previously everything was barely hanging on.
