Forget all that: Too complex

For V1 I won't be using the aluminium main bar as stated earlier. I believed at one time I could just print off and throw brackets at it but it looks like some of them will require drilling. That could be as many as 8 holes per electromagnet (of which there are 12) and even that at odd angles. Also, the cost of the ABS plastic for the 3d-printer won't be zero.

Instead, I'm going to use a steel bar wherever possible.

The bars to hold racks of components are a bit long but I'll cut them later. It looks like I can squeeze all the major stuff (big ass battery included) into just the top-half of the space I have.
