Task: Improve Scissor Lift beams
The primary circular based beams were deemed unfit for use because of the constant folding and unstable support it gave for the scissor lift. We have switched to an L-shaped design that gives us greater stability and access to greater design areas. The main point of switching however, was the extreme weight of this beams. We theoretically could have been able to stabilize the design, but without the aid of a motor, it would have been impossible to actually lift. Mr.Carter also gave us the new steel frame for drilling into our beams and give us the greatest accuracy possible for our screw holes. Before the new frame, the aluminum-based frame gave our drilled holes extra, unwanted space. This caused the screws to loosen and eventally become ineffective.
