    Shame to hear about the drill bits but those are some nice hardox pieces! Didn't realise the build was this far in progress, looking promising.

    FIGHT 1: ROUND 1

    I was slotted in for heat 4, and my first opponent was Claws 2 from Team Luna-Tic. I had faced the team before in my second Insomnia melee, and I knew how determined this family...

    Well it's been a while since I've updated this build log, but now that it's aired, I can say a bunch of stuff about the build I wouldn't have said usually. So as most of you are aware, Léim was...

    So a quick update on this listing: Today Gimson responded to my emails. They told me they had spares for the actuator and are sending over two replacement nylon gears free of charge! Pictures were...

    Ah right. Sorry for late reply, notifications for the wanted section are a little busted. I'll take a look on Aliexpress. Can't find the name Gimson popping up, and searching for the 1800N rated load...

    Thanks for the advice. I've spent the morning searching on Aliexpress searching, and there seems to be plenty of nylon spur gears available. Unfortunately I can't seem to find any replacements for...

    So thanks to the Christmas season, I finally have enough time to CAD up my next FW and the second model of Barróg, one I'm dubbing "Barróg Doom" (name pun from "Dearg Doom" by The Horslips). I was...

  9. Replacement gears for GLA1800 Linear Actuator

    So for the first time since KOB UK, I attempted to extend my Gimson GLA1800 linear actuator, only to hear a nasty stripping sound, followed by the sound of the motor spinning, but no movement. Upon...

    POST-EVENT THOUGHTS



    All things said and done I was pretty happy with how well Barróg held up, doing far better than I ever thought it would. The machine really seemed to finally be in a...

    So going into the final day, I had a feeling that Barróg could be better, and so much of the Monday morning was spent prepping the machine. One of my wheels was cracked so we tried to replace it, but...

    FIGHT 5: TOP 20

    My opponent for this round was DB12, a compact vertical spinner that had landed some pretty nasty hits earlier in the competition. This would be my first proper 1v1 against a...

    After the first days driving mishaps, I wanted to make sure that I wouldn't kamikaze myself again, so I wanted to practice driving around with a weight on the front. Fortunately, Team ACE from the...

    Well, this update post may be *slightly* late, but here is an event report for Barróg from KOB UK/Insomnia 63.

    As stated before, I didn't actually have a lot of time to make all necessary...

    This looks really fantastic! Strix was definitely one of the unluckier bots at KOB UK this year with the linac woes, but the design always looked solid to me, and this seems like it should hopefully...

    As far as I'm aware that should be the case. If you want to see a drive system more in depth Matt Maxham has a brilliant video diving into his bot Sewer Snake, and it shows off his drive system,...

    Work on Barróg has actually been pretty slow since Manchester on account of being busy with a few other things, but now that I've been accepted into Insomnia/KOB UK a fire has really been lit under...

    Ah, I see, very clever! Cheers for the explanation. I believe that this also means that in a pinch, just having the potentiometer soldered to the servo but not attached to the main drive gear can act...

    I've monitored a few for their resist value with a multimeter and they seem to be the same, but swapping a few in and out shouldn't hurt. I'll do that soon and keep this post updated.

    I'm wondering exactly how I can change one of the resistor values slightly, I assume you mean to swap one of them out with another resistor? If so, then that may be hard for me as there is nowhere...

    Alright so quick question regarding servos. I've modified the servo I'm using to turn 360 degrees. I've done this by putting 2 x 2.2k resistors in place of where a petentiometer should go, so that...
