Today we cut out the sheet metal for the block compartment. We bent the metal into the shape of a shovel/ scoop and spot welded the exposed metal. We had some trouble with drawing the lines on the metal that indicated where to drill, cut, and bend, but in the end it turned out fine. The next step is attaching the shovel that we made to the chassis and building the mechanism that scoops the blocks into the shovel.
