    Single controllers are indeed easier to get hold of and there are plenty to choose from but it is a more complex build because then you've got two separate sides as opposed to a easy to manage single...

    Sabretooths are mixed bag. I use one in my Beetleweight and it works fine but that is the 2x5A version. I don't know about the rest. They are also reasonably expensive for what they are.

    Soldering is a bit of a faff I agree - it is a matter of waiting a few minutes to get it really hot and then feeding the soldering in. Solder with flux corded stuff in it also helps.

    Many thanks, I thought it was rather good as well considering it was done in a room with light only from a desklamp on the carpet of my office. ;) I should be on course for EXR Guildford, depending...

    The rails are now in position, secured with M5 bolts. That was more fiddly that I thought it was going to be but hey, they are in now. Time permitting, I'll replace these with a plastic variant but...

    Thanks for all the advice. Trouble is, I have no where to mount said pillar drill (the vice I have is attached to my office desk as an example) so the plunge stand may end up being my only option. I...

    Whilst I sort out the final wheels for Kaizen, I've been working getting the main structure done and have made some headway today, bolting down the motors more inboard so the gearboxes are less of a...

    600mm is as wide as the baseplate on Kaizen... you are indeed going to have a trial getting this under the weight limit. That being said, I think it is possible if you are careful with the shell and...

    Ah hah, I had read there was a video of this happening, wasn't sure where it was, many thanks. Difference with that over this is that the plastic on the wheels I have isn't nylon. Possibly PVC in...

    Melting nuts into plastic wheels

    I've read/heard about this before but I've never done this before and I need to do this with Kaizen in order to mount the wheels onto a threaded motor shaft. As far as I can make out, it is a case of...

    The ones I have (which arrived today) don't have any bearings in them or any metal so that won't be an issue, just really a case of getting the bore enlarged and then these nuts fitted into place.

    Hahahaa, no worries. Now if only these wheels turned up, I might be able to crack on and have something moving. I have got the centre bulkheads tied together so I can mark and drill the centre...

    Weapons that go through the top of robots in the BW category are comparatively rare compared to the side. However, I wouldn't be comfortable with that much clearance either (though says me, my...

    Looks OK to me, if a bit tight to the motor. Worth experimenting with the orientation of the battery so it is vertically mounted in the robot rather than horizontally? Looks like it is coming on well...

    I suspect you'd be OK if the LED accepts 12v with a matching voltage battery though the only LEDs I've ever used have resistors wired in anyway apart from the one I hastily put together in Manchester.
