Fish Feeder Housing Modifications.

Well… After 15 months of saving up my pennies and dimes, I could finally afford to buy the $12 fish feeder and the $12 servo to make the first part of my Internet Aquarium that will be ran off my Rabbitcore 3700.

The feeder housing showing part of the cutout and the factory provided modification marks I notched out the back for the Servo. I needed to cut out that tab so there was room for the mounting bracket for my Futaba S3003 servo. Lucky for me, there are 2 little marks that lined up exactly where I needed to cut.

I have 2 options, shim it up with plastic or wood, or create nut and bolt stand-offs. The servo isn’t going to face much resistance, so I think that the bolts would be the best bet.
