A post for the robots.
|This was part of a FIRST robot, 2010. The weight relief was milled with a rotary table.|
|Part of the same robot, also made with manual mill. It's a battery mount. I remember making it very quickly; I don't actually remember how long it took.|
|The box on the left is the last thing I made for FIRST, 2011. Manually machined from a block of 3/4" aluminum. |
|Mostly wooden pen plotter made 2011-2012|
|Pen head. A small 24v solenoid pushes the lever to lift the pen.|
|Unconventional toothed belt tensioner. The pulley inside the block is nylon with an internal 3/8" OD ball bearing. Very smooth.|
