A Router is a Most Wonderful Power Tool

In my previous post I pointed to my Open Source code for the project. In this post, I describe the mounting of the solenoids to the frame.

The conundrum of the project has been how to mount the solenoids to the glockenspiel. If I were a metalworker, I’d probably tap the solenoid holes and fasten them with 2mm screws into a metal strip. My 2017 future self says to design a 3D printable holder. Not knowing how to tap such tiny holes and not (yet) knowing how to design 3d printed parts, I’ve been thinking and thinking about how to mount the solenoids to wood.

Robotic Glockenspiel and Arduino Midi File Reader Library on Github

In my previous post I pointed to some sources of information about how to read Midi music files. I’ve now Open Sourced my working code.

I’m a total newbie at Git, but even so I’ve managed to create repositories for the Robotic Glockenspiel and the Arduino Midi File Reader library it uses.  See My GitHub  repositories for the current state of things.
