Here is is an update photo on what the feet currently look like.

Shoulder Hubs

I finished mounting the shoulder hubs. I will update later with pictures. I attached the magnets together with some wax paper between them. I them applied some JB Weld to the new magnet and put the shoulder hub into the leg. After a while I pulled the hub out and separated the magnets. I then put the magnets back into position with another magnets, on the other side of the leg, holding them in place and squeezed towards the leg wall.

Weekend Update 2

Finished drilling the shoulder hubs. I JB Welded some rare earth magnets in the holes. They are now ready for mounting. I just need to attach some magnets on the legs. It will be interesting to see how the JB Weld reacts with the magnets. You can acually see the JB Weld interact with the magnetic fields.

I finished the final foot shell, and applied some white primer to the shells. I also cut all the craided hose and tubes. I now need to cut the nuts that will hold the KHFs on the feet.
