I've reached out to a local shop where a friend of mine works in order to see how viable it would be to get a few quick protos made.
I've spoken with the head of the machine shop at my school and should hopefully be able to have some stuff run there.. it's a bit iffy, but I think there's a chance.
Jonathan is out of town till the end of the week and I assume he'll have some stuff to catch up on. That is where I'm getting a wait time of about 2-3 weeks before we are ready to go get quotes. (that's including time since we are both busy)
I'm also working with one of my teachers on getting some fluid simulations for our bolt in order to possibly help tune it for maximum performance across various aspects. This is more of a "as I have time" kind of thing since I need to learn how to use a few programs in order to adequately use and interpret the results. It's also midterms this week.. so it kinda sucks. >.>
Hm.. I think that's all. I feel really stupid for not doing some of this "back end" work while I had the time before school started.
