Attaching The Dome Motor Assembly To The Frame

I decided it was time to attached the dome motor assembly to the top board of the frame. In order for the Rocker Bearing (the Lazy Susan used to rotate the dome) to spin freely, I had to chisel out a couple of areas for the assembly to in the frame.
In order to get the Rockler Bearing to turn, the wheel needs to make constant contact with the innermost portion of the bearing. To ensure continual contact, a spring is attached between two bolts. One on the top frame and one on the motor assembly swing arm.
Once the spring is in place and all the bolts/screws are tightened R2-NU looked like the following.

Dome Motor Assembly
