[Stephen, Radhika]

As of last Thursday (5/13), the new vacuum tubes had been selected and bolted in. We fixed the copper braid to the cryo-cooler: the braid was folded in half, with the loose ends bolted to the cryo-cooler and the folded end fed through the vacuum tubes into the chamber. The folded loop was bolted down to the baseplate. The copper braid was pulled tight and thus has no slack. Aluminum sheets were used to wrap frayed areas of the copper braid to prevent shorting to the tube walls, though this needs to be revisited. We also still need to address shorting to the inner/outer radiation shields.
