 * We moved all the in-air cables over to the tank.
 * We plugged all the in-air and in-vacuum cables into the feedthroughs and checked that we got signals from all the output channels (actuation not yet tested). We had to work around a snag with the new F-F gender changers that replace many Type 1 and Type 2 cables: like the vacuum feedthroughs, they flip pins 1 and 5. Electrically they could just be omitted, but the in-air cables don't plug directly into the feedthroughs very well, so we made up some non-flipping adapters similar to the anti-feedthrough adapters.
 * Hirata-san fixed a problem with one of the rods supporting the LBB Cu ring, where the head was not seating in the receptacle at the bottom. The head was slightly bent so he just reinstalled the rod upside-down to move the bent head to a less critical spot. (This also establishes that it's possible to install the rods later if we need to, although it's more convenient to bring them in with the suspension on the crane as we've been doing it.)
 * We suspended the LBB. Per a request from Akutsu-san, we set it as high as we easily could. We decided to try for 30 mm higher than in the CAD, for a height of 367 (instead of 397) mm for the beam line above the LBB. 40 mm would also be doable, but any more would need new rods, and more than ≈100 mm would cause the LBB to hit the bottom of the security structure.
 * We moved a lot of stuff out of the +X side of the cleanbooth to behind SRM, so that Mirapro could connect the section of beam duct between the BS tank and the X arm. They put the new section in position but have not connected it up yet.
 * Hirata-san worked with Mirapro to get the SR assembly frame assembled in the SR3 area. (Insertion of the LBB and installation of the top of the tank is planned for 10/18-20.)
 * We investigated a problem with the IM OSEM readings, which were far from mid-range. Although Fabian and Ohishi-san got the payload hanging nicely on Thu 9/21, sometime between then and when we plugged the OSEMs back in on 9/28, the BF and IRM apparently tipped considerably (with the +X corner high) so that the H2 and H3 OSEM flags are fouling on the bottom and top of their respective OSEMs.
 * We took the service ports off the BF tank at the BF level and trying correcting the tilt by moving the sliding masses around, but to no avail. Finally Hirata-san solved it by noticing that one of the BF-IRM rods was not seated properly at the top. Because it had been correct, and couldn't have fallen upwards, it must have gotten knocked during the LBB adjustment work. We locked the BF temporarily, lifted the corner of the IRM and jiggled the rod. It fell back into place and the alignment was much better. We backed out the sliding mass adjustments and it was back to normal.
 * We moved or covered stuff in the BS cleanbooth to prepare for the SR2 crane slot cutting and BS-> SR2 assembly frame move.
 * We put the service port covers back on at the BF level of the BS tank.
 * We used the PI jacks to center the bottom of the security structure around the RM.
 * We debugged a mechanical issue where the #2 IP LVDT had too narrow a gap between the moving and fixed parts, so that there was interference with only a very small clockwise yaw of the IP. We fixed it by moving the bottom baseplate (taking advantage of the fact that it was held by screws in oversize holes for this purpose).
 * We used the IP FRs to center the IP.
 * We set the gains on the IP LVDT driver.
 * We tested the picos and most of the steppers. The picos and IP steppers all work nicely. The PI FR and yaw steppers have jamming issues. We haven't tested the BF and SF FR steppers.
 * We debugged an issue with one of the geophones (#1) which has a DC offset. We did cable swaps and determined that the issue is internal to the geophone pod. A second geophone (#2) saturates at a suspiciously small voltage on the negative side. Again the issue is internal.
 * Fabian designed an improvement to the PI yaw stepper driver mount to stop the stepper jamming.
 * Fabian worked on a plan to measure the load capacity of the SR PIs.
 * Hirata-san did 2D drawings of the PI for the SR, and of SF2 and SRM in their vacuum chambers.
 * Hirata-san did drawings if the SR LBB damper rings and asked for quotes.
 * Hirata-san asked for quotes for SR secondary wire breakers and SR IM/IRM lock screws
 * Hirata-san ordered SR IM wire clamps.
 * Hirata-san worked on parts lists for SR cable clamps.
