    Looks like it will be very tough and sturdy - what width and thickness is the box section being used in the photos?

    Lol thanks! The idea at the min is to drill top to bottom through the base and sides and use nuts and bolts to clamp the sides to the base plate. Currently trying to dream up a much neater solution.

    The box section is 2mm wall thickness and is 50mm x 50mm cross section. Robot is 400mm square.

    Awesome!

    TBH, Short of welding the panels to the box frame, I would think some quite meaty bolts, nuts and washers (M8/M10 type stuff) would be plenty to keep the panels to the frame. Makes it look quite industrial as well. As for the frame itself, 4x (or 8x) L shaped brackets on the interior so the panels sit flush on the box section (again, held in with nuts/bolts/washers)?

    Did you decide on a weapon at all?

    Btw to embed images from imgur just use the add image button in the editor and use the From URL tab. You need the link from imgur with the image name though like this: http://i.imgur.com/Ik9NXoG.jpg so I you can just slap .jpg on the end of the link and it should work.

    E.g.

    Spent the last few weeks sizing up and re-cutting, it was way too big. Shortened to 400mm wide by 300mm long. Then spent another week cutting it all out again by hand.

    I have some small motors and gearboxes I bought cheap a couple of months back but am worried they won't be torquey enough. I might try them, and if they're rubbish get some expensive ones.
