Step 37: Waist Linkage Redo

Rebuilt mechanism to bend at waist - still not great

-moved motor a little
-added L bracket to try and get more leverage (had to make L bracket)
-added small link to give it some slack
-added a screw to keep the link from locking up when robot is bent all the way down

-also - replace mosfet driving waist motor (second time - should add fuse, or something better)
Great project...just maybe for a future reference dont put the programs on the imstructable...put in a link to a pdf file or something :)
