New Legs for Charlotte

Spent some of the morning cutting some new legs for Charlotte to remedy the lockups she was experiencing and to get rid of the ABS.
Tried some UHMW PE (Ultra High Molecule Weight Polyethelene) and decided I still like the HDPE (High Density Polyethelene) better, which is nice, since it's cheaper. Here's the latest Charlotte:
When I was assembling the new legs, I realized that the large three-holed bar is easy to get on backwards. The longer dimension needs to be closer to the gear. I had one set of the original legs incorrect.
With the new legs and the arm directions all correct, Charlotte now clacks along even more purposefully than she did before!
