the hold_servo.hex download is already a .hex no nreed to "build"
I just put in on the computer, created the project, selected it ( a window with lost of gree number chains appeared.), I then connected the AVR ISP Mk2 and uploadded it.
Servos, that I had open previously, started to spin immidiatly. Was easy enough to turn the pots to stop them, put a drop of super glue on each, modify the mechanical stops on the 2 gears while waiting, then go back to cut the "tab" on the pots flush to the "cylinder shape and fiinally reassemble.
