    Working on finishing up some of the front panel details.  Attached 8x8 RGB panel, connected the switch and a little bead board so the front panel can easily be removed by unplugging cables.

    There is a DS18B20 sensor that is not currently working with node-red, will be shortly.

What are the lead screws doing?

  Are you sure? yes | no

The lead screws pull and push holders for the usb hard drives, supports 2 but only 1 is currently being used. Using a  screw driver you can push in to disengage the little gears, then turn to clamp the drive into place.
