where are the curved pieces seen in the video? and do you have assembly instructions ?

If you are having trouble with the 1/4" shafts on the arms and stuff. I found something that works really good on them. It is a 1/4" wood plug cutter. It is used to cut round dots out of wood and works perfectly to cut down a 1/4" 3d printed shaft of any kind. these are what they look like http://www.amazon.com/Wolfcraft-3-Piece-Plug-Cutters/dp/B00C7W9TGA/ref=sr_1_9?ie=UTF8&qid=1438116807&sr=8-9&keywords=plug+cutter
I use them by hand, you have to start them carefully, but once they start it cuts the shaft round and true down as long as you have the depth for on the cutter. Very hand little tool for 3D printing mechanical parts.

The files Tank_Arm_Support_R and Tank_Arm_Support_L are a little too big. Can you repost those 2 files with the correct dimensions again?

Is it also possible to post the original files? I want to use yours but i need a few adjustments.

In advance, thank you :)
