Thing-a-day, Day 26: Pan/Tilt mount for Marshmallow Gun

Today I continued work on the Automatic Marshmallow gun. I tried a couple of designs, and ended up with what appears to be a pretty solid base to build on. Note that this is a work in progress. The steppers still need to be mounted and programmed, and the firing issue still needs to be resolved. I think I might have a way around the firing bit though, if I connect an extension hose to the end of the duster can and use something to pinch it. However, that might end up being a problem for gas leakage.
