Last of the fourth axis removed
Removed the left leg fourth axis ready for conversion, converted the remaining ankle sensors then got brave and decided to remove the two posterior metatarsus valves. This gave me an idea of how tricky it would be to add he A + B port sandwich valves to take pressure sensors. While the machine is stripped down and the valves are accessible I think it would be a good idea to fir the sandwich valves with the ports blocked, this way if I decide to add pressure sensors in the future I only need remove the plugs.. well and add a new loom to the valve control box... plus the 36 sensors that would be needed!
