Yes, all academic at this point. Not sure what would work best with the area available.

Messing with this kind of 'stuff' could lead to many unknowns.
For example, it looks like the OP may have been 'Beamed Up! :razz:

Well now, that would be a completely different series. But which one to choose... I prefer TOS, TNG, and Voyager, in that order. :mrgreen:

It's uncharacteristically cold in Texas. Once it warms up again Ill finish the wooden parts of the console. In the meantime I am gathering the initial parts to get the servo roughed out. I have decided to use a drill press and pattern to cut uniform 1/4 holes in the center PVC tube. I'll then clean it out and paint it. The platform holding the LED tube lights will run up and down with in it. This way fingers will be safe and it should still show color change and movement.

Thanks again for the guidance.

When you get it working, don't forget to upload new photos or maybe a video link. I know I'd like to see it in action.
