New Arm

arm1

The arm has been replaced and seems to be strong enough. A new piece of thin rectangular steel was cut, and reinforced via a smaller, but thicker, piece of steel placed inside it.

The arm also has 3 solid guy wires instead of rope. The tower that supports the guy wires has been lengthened for better leverage. The counter-balance for the arm was moved outward to account for the heavier arm.
