    Hahahaa! I may end up simply sharpening the bolts themselves if it comes to it. Finally got around to weighing Shu! - weighs 863g at the moment so that is a worry off my mind. In the middle of...

    I happen to know that The Westminster Warrior uses the same motors as The Honey Badger 2.x and would recommend using the same motors again but use a pair of Gimson hubs that fit those motors...

    No worries ;) If you are planning to run The Westminster Warrior again, I am quite happy to help.

    So the new bidirectional 10A speed controller arrived this evening. A quick soldering job to fit it in (and a burnt fingernail), the arm now works as I hoped it would though there are still question...

    Haahaaha! I do have proper wheel hubs for the shaft but none of my M3 bolts appear to fit it so I think I might have a US measurement hub, which would appear to be ever so slightly narrower (4-40 by...

    Haha, sometimes they are magical to me as well :D I repositioned the motor further back onto the plate and it was a bit better, it managed to flip the cookie pack once but when the weight was...

    Ah, I see. I use a Dremel 3000 that came with the EZ Speedclic adaptor on it, only burnt through one metal cutting disc so far and a couple of grinding bands things. If the discs were brown, then...

    Been focusing on Shu! over the last couple of weeks but found a bit of time this morning with the Dremel to clean up the side panels, which now look vaguely respectful again. Shrekt managed to put a...

    What sort of discs are you using? I use the EZ speedclic discs and am able to cut through 10mm HDPE with a metal cutting disc with little issue.

    I did wonder about that. Either the addition (in the event that Carbide weighs exactly 110kg) meant they were forced to use the lighter bar or that 110kg figure is rounded up (note that in the...

    Can't see why not, I'd be blown away (bah-dum-pish :D). I can imagine it being awfully loud and I would think a fan guard would be needed if it hasn't got one. Be good entertainment mind ;)
