Six opto-endstop boards finished

I sat down last night to 'finish off' the six opto-endstop boards that I'd added the components to last week. It's surprising how long a simple task takes, like cutting a couple of feet of 3-core wire, stripping the ends, and attaching the plugs and soldering to the board, especially when you have to do it six times.

All the endstop boards are now complete, so I can run the stepper motors from end to end without banging into the mechanical stops at either end.

I've only got the three stepper controller boards to go!
