The aluminum handles for the cogged wooden panels are slightly different than the plain panels.
I welded a steel frame, motor mount and end gear mount using 1" x 1/8" thick angle iron.
I originally designed the panels to slide together with very little space between each panel. The video game is designed like this and I also thought it would be better for the gears. However, when trying to slide together several geared panels in one corner, the gears will not slide into place.
