Only Rachel and Izzie could meet today, but we finally figured out how to attach the sweeper. Our plan is to have the servo for the sweeper to turn the axle with the zipties attached. However, we don't have space to have the sweeper to be permanently attached with our bucket, so we came up with the idea of the sweeper being attached to ANOTHER servo. This way, we can pull it in to fit in the sizing box, and then we can have it out of the 18 inch box. While there were some challenges with that, by the end of the meeting the sweeper was able to move forward into a position where it could be used, and then backwards and up into a position in which it would not be in the way. It was quite a struggle to get this to line up in a correct way with the gears that the sweeper spins on.
