Step 5: Mounting turret and motors to the base

Picture of Mounting turret and motors to the base
I centered the turret and use some 1" x 1" x 0.125" steel angle stock to bolt it down.

I tapped holes in the polycarbonate blocks and screwed the motors to the baseplate. Polycarb is one of my favorite materials, mostly because its clear so its very easy to line holes up and is much, much stronger than acrylic.

Yes only the corner wheels work. It works but turning is hard on the system. I ran out of time to add the chains to drive the other 2 wheels.
