Outdoor Robot Progress

Filed under: Uncategorized — Bob @ 4:35 pm

This weekend I managed to spend some time preparing the “backbone” of my outdoor Robo-Magellan robot. Basically I drilled and tapped some holes in extruded aluminum angle stock. I ended up creating a jig on my Sherline mill so it was just a matter of clamping down each piece and run the program to drill the right holes.

Here is another picture, from the top, that shows the two plates connected together before mounting the second set of wheels.

Next up is to machine motor mounts then construct an upper deck. Hopefully I’ll get some time soon to tackle those challenges.
