 * We craned in the PI.
 * We assembled the thrust bearing holder that receives the PI-SF rod. (The recess for the bearing was very slightly too small and had a burr near a retaining screw hole that prevented the bearing from seating properly, and so it required filing and re-cleaning.)
 * We hooked the SF and lowered the jacks under the SF to suspend the SF/... section.
 * The top filter rose when unlocked, and required about 1.8 kg to send it back down. Therefore we may be OK - the top filter seems to have about 8 kg more capacity than as measured by G&M. The hex cable clamp (≈0.25 kg) and the cables between the PI and SF still have to be added, but we can get an extra 3 kg by removing one of the three Cu damper segments (and rearranging the other two).
 * Hirata-san built and installed three LBB blade units.
 * Enzo kept debugging the SF LVDT. We repaired several broken wires, but it's still not behaving correctly. We suspect the ordering of the three coils (input output and excitation) may not be right. If so, we should be able to fix it with an adapter cable without removing the SF cap.
 * We removed the PI from the assembly frame.
 * We encountered a problem with the PI-SF rod jamming in the SF. We finally got it out by clamping a pig of vice grips to the rod and hammering. We found that the receptacle part was the right size (7.0 mm) but had been deformed around the edge. Hirata-san used a knife and sandpaper to lean up the edge and then ultrasonically cleaned it.
 * We cleared space for the PR2 team to remove a bellows from their tank.
 * We installed safety bars near the assembly frame at about waist height for someone on the tall ladder. We reinforced the clamps with cable ties.
 * We removed the LLB blade units from the PI, removed the blades from the clamps and sent the blades away for more rework to fix the length problem. Fortunately the tab section at the tip is fairly long, so we can just add a second hole further from the end.
 * We removed the SF cap and stored it on crossbars within the assembly frame.
 * We tested the SR fishing rod again, but it would only go up, not down. We found that reseting the driver fixed it, but we also moved the driver boxes into the cleanbooth to reduce the length of the motor cables. (Instead, we had to run some long DC and LAN cables.)
 * We adjusted the limit nut on the SF fishing rod to increase the range.
 * We removed one segment of the Cu ring on the SF cap and reconfigured the rest to be symmetrical.
 * Fabian designed a layout for the SF damper ring magnets that would work with the modified Cu ring, and placed the magnets with the template. The poles of the magnets were not on the expected faces so we had to stand the magnets up with the ,

 * No activity (Golden Week).

Week of 5/8:
 * Commence work Tuesday 5/9.
 * Remove PI temporarily.

 * Investigate possible mis-alignment between the tips of the LBB blades and the holes for the rods going down to the damper ring.

Week of 5/15:

  • Enzo from Tuesday 5/16 (driving test), rest of team from Monday.
  • Fix PI-SF rod jamming.
  • Remove PI and SF cap.
  • Continue debugging SF LVDT.
  • Reconfigure Cu damper ring on SF.
  • Add magnets to upper SF damper ring.

  • Reinstall PI, this time with rods and damper ring.
  • Reinstall PI-SF rod, this time with hex cable clamp.
  • Prepare for PR2 bellows removal on 5/15 (move table with tools).
