[Jenne, Kyung Ha]
We made some good progress on suspending the Tip Tilt ECDs today. We finished one whole set, plus another half. The half is because one of the screw holes on the lower right ECD somehow got cross threaded. The ECD and screws in question were separately wrapped in foil to mark them as iffy. We'll redo that second half tomorrow. This makes a total of 2.5 (including yesterday's work) ECD backplanes suspended. The only thing left for these ones is to trim up the excess wire.
We also (with Koji) took a look at the jig used for suspending the mirror holder. It looks like it was designed for so many Tip Tilt generations ago as to be basically useless for the 40m TTs. The only really useful thing we'll get out of it is the distance between the suspension block and the mirror holder clamps. Other than that we'll have to make do by holding the mirror and block at the correct distance apart, utilizing a ruler, calipers, or similar. Rana pointed out that we should slightly bend the blade springs up a bit, so that when they are holding the load of the mirror holder, they sit flat.
Attached below are 2 different pictures of one of the ECD backplane sets that has been suspended. One with black background to illustrate the general structure, and one with foil background to emphasize the wires.
