We have finished building Janus, the Floating Axle King Arthur/ Floating Everything Whipper (FAKA/FEW) Hybrid. The frame, which was finished several weeks ago, got stained similarly to Medieval Postal Service, and we got the steel and aluminum ordered. Last weekend (March 13-14) was spent in Buffalo machining and welding. Thanks again to Great Lakes Pressed Steel for helping us out with getting materials and for shop space to work. We were not able to make the arm at this time since the aluminum for that had not come in yet, but Jason took care of that later in the week and brought everything to Rochester Friday evening. Chris and Matt took the trebuchet out yesterday for initial testing and verification of a few systems, more on that will follow in a day or two.
