    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...

    Ocracoke replied to a thread Project Squirrel in Featherweights
    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...

    Today was about fabricating the lifting arm, which marks another tick in the stuff that needs to be done list before Feburary. After a session with the Dremel and a sheet of PVC... It still...

    Hmm... certainly looks powerful but I would not want to be around it if that spring decides to break (might be worth fitting a blanking plate over where the spring is exposed. Having watched...

    I possibly would not bother with a spring... when I was prototyping a axe mechanism, I simply used a bit of metal with a slot on it, a motor and a hub with one screw in it and I'd imagine it is the...

    I am sure Mortis used a mechanical axe that may have been driven by a CAM mechanism - I've been re-watching the fight between Ghetto-Bot and Mortis from the War of Independence special in Series 4...

    So bigger 1500 m/ah 3S LiFe batteries and a speed controller arrived today and they were eventually wired in to the robot. However, I think I've made a silly move, the ESC only appears to work in one...

    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 ;)

    So with Shu! now running, I decided again to change the design again and have finally settled down on it. Just need to get the weapon speed arm/controller/battery/motor mounted and then we'll see how...

    From my experience, a half good featherweight need not cost the Earth.My featherweight cost me about £250-£300ish in its current form and was able to stand up to a spinner. Admittedly, Beetleweights...

    Hey there, welcome to the forum! Beetleweights are a good class to start off in but you could argue that Featherweights are just as easy. You can easily plough in as much money into a...
