John - Where are you located?  If you are in Michigan and somewhat local -
I'd love to get together on this project with ya.  Dave reached out to me
as well, but this is just too much of a drive for me at the moment, plus I
cant store everything he has.  I have some room - but not a ton. (Two 3/4
full storage units and a packed garage - my folks passed recently and I'm
still sorting through their stuff).

That being said - if one or two guys local are interested in these Puma
arms - I can guarantee there is another one local (I'm working with the
seller to go check it out in the next week or so), and with Dave's stuff,
that would make three or more...  could make for a pretty cool group
project to get them all working.

I just don't have the electronics experience - I can do board work and
pretty much any repairs on single layer boards - but I'm not an EE so
outside of obvious stuff, I can't do any diagnostics.  But, I'll happily
create Digikey parts lists and swap the required bits once the issues are
