there we go all right and then itsy-bitsy washer up that was classic all right here we go it's a busy washer and the reason you what we want to use the washers it just makes the spreads the force of the screw out a little bit more which can be useful all right so this is when it's gonna be handy to have a needlenose pliers and then we can take our screwdriver one of our little ones like this guy right here and we're gonna hold the hold the nut on this side and turn it turn the screw on this side with a screwdriver you want to make sure it's pretty tight because these will come loose and if they do if it's not really tight it'll come loose and if it does it'll just make your the parts running around on your board and I do think that the longer screws for this makes sense because they will help to they'll allow you to mount your Arduino further up then you would be able to if you were using shorter shorter ones which can be again and which will be handy because you have to miss this thing and if the Arduino is up a little higher it'll be easier to access the USB which you'll want for being able to the upload code and the other reason why you want it up like that is that it will make it easier to run wires underneath it if you need to do that in for this one I believe we do run a few wires underneath the Arduino okay so now we're going to see if the Arduino fits yes and it does okay so we want to make sure that we melt the Arduino high enough that we can still access that USB port so what the way we're going to do that is we'll take we'll take some of the same nuts that we use to tighten the bolts or the machine screws down and we'll set them OH we'll set them at a height on the machine screws so that that holds up the Arduino so it's probably about like that okay again having it mounted higher like that allows us to connect to the USB in run our wires underneath which will be handy okay before we connect the Arduino we still need to mount the motors okay so we've just inserted the Arduino in place and I think we'll run these these power wires underneath it or around it somehow we'll go underneath it like this and then we're gonna put these nuts on top the screw posts and type them all down to hold the Arduino firmly in place oh there he goes maybe this one's magnetized yeah you can see this side back here just a little bit lower than the other side so what I'm gonna do is I can fix that by just raising the bolt with the nut back here up just a little bit there we go I want to make sure that they're all about the same you might be able to get the nuts to go on I think I'm just gonna skip that there's too many bits close to it okay so before I tighten this down all the way I want to make sure I'll test that and well actually you know what I'm gonna go ahead and tighten it down just cuz I may forget okay that's that's pretty solid
