Assemble the Right Shoulder

Step 1

We will need the parts from this issue, as well as the Right Shoulder Joint from Issue 21 and the Right Shoulder from the last issue:

Steps 2-3

Place the Right Shoulder Joint into the Right Shoulder (from Issue 22), fitting it down into the teeth.

The instructions talk about the correct orientation, but actually, this can be rotated at any time. In the photo below, I have it 90 degrees from the instructions, but rotate it to their ‘recommended’ position in the next step.

Step 4

Flip this assembly over and place the Right Shoulder Joint (from Issue 21)  on top, aligning the pegs and screw holes:

Step 5

Secure these parts together from underneath with two (2) PM 3×6 mm screws.

At this point, for the sake of clarity, I rotated the inner part to match the instructions:


That was a really quick issue. Keep all of these parts safe until Issue 25.
