A list of choices we made, why we made them, and how it went

We want to share information about our parts research, decisions, and experiences to serve others who are working on similar projects.  Some of the links in these pages are "affiliate links."  If you decide to buy something based on our recommendation, it would be nice if you used the direct link from this page so that we can make a small commission for referring you (which doesn't cost you anything extra).
