rebuilt the ETX

Reassembled the ETX. Did a test fit. All worked well, on the bench.

Used two thin bolts to hold the right arm to the base. Found two in my various parts bins. Had to cut one bolt down to avoid interference with the altitude worm. Used the new nickel-plated 6/32-½" bolts with washers from Sayal to secure the OTA to the arm brackets. Everything felt very secure.

Anxious to field test.
