    The x bracing is nicely executed, the whole process feels very well engineered.
    Except for the fact, that you screw down a quick release system. Why do you have screws on the bottom of the x bracing, isn't that way too slow on stage when you swap out the programming plates? I think you should time the process with enough tolerance to make up for some little missteps.

    I just saw this episode and I asked myself - does the machine have too much weight located on its backside? It is very tall and maybe a bit imbalanced, even though there are some more parts which are going to be attached on the frontside.

    Any plans to add Filigree inside the arches along the bottom. I think it would add greatly to the aesthetic. It would give it that classic Victorian age look.

    Something others have been saying is to use hand screws on the bottom of the X-brace. The thought that immediately comes to my mind is a wing screw, like on a drumset or cymbal stand.
    Others have also suggested making it so the screw doesn't come out of the X-brace, but still turns. I know that there's a specific part that does exactly that, but I don't know what it is called.

    When I was a kid in Huntington Beach, California, USA, there was a similar place that was basically a big empty dirt lot, a lot of scrap wood, and hammers and nails. Kids were allowed to go there, and build whatever. There were weird forts covering holes in the ground, more house like structures, etc... I only ever went there once but it was a ton of fun and, in retrospect, extremely dangerous, lol. (I couldn't have been more than 10 when I went). The stability of most of the structures was very questionable, and I shudder to think how many kids were impaled on rusty nails. This was the late 80's for me, too.

    Always incredible vids cant wait till the machine is done your music is awesome and this machine will be a fantastic addition. One word of warning you may need to make the back bracing raise up higher, when you guys are on a dark stage trying to quickly change songs or repin with the bracing up someone's going to get the end of the cross brace in the face.

    So... I'm trying to figure out how much is actually left to do?
    1. I don't see marble tracks/tubes from the demagnetizer to the conveyor.
    2. I don't see the marble paths to the instruments from the drop points. (Are the drop points actually above all of the instruments this time? I know the cymbal wasn't on the original, so I'm not sure on this one.
    3. The bass he put on last week, is that the final version? The mounting point isn't yet, either way.
    4. The vibraphone. Where's the vibrato mechanism this time? How will it work if the bars are going to be flopping up and down? Mounting points for it.
    5. The ondaphone and its mount.
    6. Finalized mounts for the percussion section.
    7. The catch funnels.
    8. Return tracks to the lower wheel.
    9. I think he said something about a loading point or system for the marbles
    Um... Is that everything?
    It actually is starting to feel like this thing is close to being finished?!?
