Just a quick update. Not much to it, I had to tear the old design apart to take some steel I need to use for the side tables. But I really missed my cold coffee. So I gave it a much needed re-design. Now its much more compact & simple.
Next step will be to upgrade the soda bottle to a glass bottle ... but for me to do that, I'll need a few new tools:
- Glass scoring bit mounted to score a bottle around its base
- diamond dremel bit ... to drill small holes in glass
I may also work on a 3d printed structure to hold the servo & photo-interupter.
For now, I look forward to cold drip coffee tomorrow with the famillia. Happy family day.
