Almost got a stage!

Got the teflon all nice and on. Cut the threaded rod shorter so I don't have to fiddle with the hole in the other end. Put the spring-tightened wheels on (instead of countersinking on the bearing arms, I put an extra nut between them and the plate, allowing the head of the bolt room to be there. Much easier. Don't know what the whole countersinking deal is, except to make it harder). Got some 9mm tubing from Dragefisken for free (thank you!). However, my drive shaft on the motors is 6mm, so I'll have to extend it somehow. Best bet is these little drill stops that happen to go from 6 to 10 mm, with a tightening screw. The alternative is to get a 6mm threaded rod, but that would require finding some 6mm tubing, which Dragefisken does not have. Trying with the drill stops first, even though they're 50kr apiece.
