Speaking of eBay, I was wondering if I could get some opinions on
I respect a seller's desire not to accept paypal because of the fees.
But wouldn't it be nice to accept a personal check?
This isn't as far off topic as it might seem. The auction is for a
Golden Arrow, a circa 1989 Radio Shack RC car. I made the mistake of
letting a neighbor kid try mine. Within 15 seconds he had driven it
under an approaching Mustang. The damage was minimal; just crushed the
left front wheel and scuffed up the bottom a bit. I repaired it with
some replacement cars I bought on eBay a few years ago. Just though I'd
replenish my supply.
P.S.: Given the recent discussions of CNC machines I think this would
be the ideal place to ask: The steering is getting kinda sloppy. One of
the problems is that the steering servo output shaft has to much play in
it. By that I mean it is kinda loose in the outside bearing. Looks like
the shaft itself is wearing. The gears seem fine. They actually did a
good job with the gears. The teeth on the gear close to the motor are
really skinny. The teeth on the output shaft are nearly a quarter inch wide.
