Control Panel Revisit

Took some time out from the Mechanical work to work on the Electrical & Electronics Department.

Bought a economical PC chassis to house the Atom board, its really convenient & took less then 30 minutes to get it done. Should had gone this way from day one, real salvation of my sanity.

Re-mounted the BOB with a ribbon cable to the external connector.
Changed the internal hook-up wire to 18AWG wires. I learn the hard way that thin 24AWG wires keeps breaking under its own weight & my itchy fingers didn't help.
Re-position the contractor, Rectifier & capacitor.

Opened a few holes for the cooling fan, main feeder wires, screen stepper cables... etc
