1 Day Complexity: Moderate
1. DRILL AND PAINT THE ENCLOSURE
Chester doesn’t get too aggressive with the Kitty Twitty, but if he ever does, I’ll add some weight to the
enclosure to help keep it upright.
1a. Decide where to drill the hole for the power and Ethernet
cables. Attach the Ethernet shield on top of the Arduino and
place them in the box to see where they fit best. Mark the location of the hole with a pencil on the outside of the box.
1b. Use a ½" spade bit to drill the hole, and go slow to minimize
splintering. Once the hole is drilled, give it a quick test-fit. Does it
fit? Yes? Good!
1c. Mark the 4 holes where you want to mount the 2 LED holders,
the power switch, and the hollow wall anchor. The wall anchor
should be in the center.
1d. Drill small pilot holes at each location (
1" should work) and
then drill out the holes to fit the components.
