Robot Parts

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.
