Re: Fishy Electronics - DisinfectANT , Cilit BANG

That thing just looks SILLY, and in the most beautiful way! I just really, REALLY hope it isn't going to Drizzle itself. I'm also slightly worried that the wobble from the walker mechanism (if there is any) combined with the gyro effect of a bar - especially one that high off the ground - is gonna ...

Re: Fishy Electronics - DisinfectANT , Cilit BANG

https://i.ibb.co/tBNVpxB/WIP2.jpg Cilit BANG 90% there with design, just some more work on the chassis to hold all the components (with room for [most] wires this time!) Offset composite weapon bar looks very unbalanced, but it will be fiiiine :P Had to reduce to 4 legs to save weight and space... ...

Re: Team Antiquarian build diary

Looks awesome! A+ Dad-ing!

Some grey paint and a couple of stencils or yellow/black hazard tape would decorate that arena up nicely :)
Good luck in your battles!

Re: Cleaning gear motors

From how i understand it, it blasts ultrasonics at the part through the liquid. This agitates the liquid against the surfaces and causes micro bubbles to form on the surface and lift away the grease, dirt or particles attached to it. Depending on strength of the cleaner it can remove corrosion or i ...

Re: Cleaning gear motors

Im using an ultrasonic cleaner to remove grease dust and .. shavings of brass, where i shaved the motor down, from the gears :P You can pick a small low power one for £30, good for jewelry, watches or DLP 3D prints :D https://www.ebay.co.uk/p/1-3l-Ultrasonic-Cleaner-Timer-Tank-Heated-Bath-Jewellery-...

Re: DisinfectANT - Antweight First Build Log

25g of downward force from the tail, drive wheels acting as a fulcrum = should push the front plate down against the floor, at the loss of a little traction (well, it's not a pusher to start with) Hopefully with some acetate being pushed against the floor with that effective extra weight, it's going...

Re: DisinfectANT - Antweight First Build Log

Little size mod on the motors. Now im going to have to put them in the ultrasonic cleaner to get rid of the metal dust in the gears :roll: 0.7mm removed from the top side https://image.ibb.co/fmZBxq/IMG-20181112-180432.jpg And Nylon frame is surprisingly tough for something so thin. So that's all ma...

Re: DisinfectANT - Antweight First Build Log

Ahh fate doesn't want to to finish this ant this month :( Drilling out the sheared screws to 1.6mm. Have to use the edge finder to make a x0 y0 point to reference from. https://image.ibb.co/jCoA5A/faceu-20181111140853.jpg Turns out that buying a cheap edge finder is not a good idea, since it whips i...

Re: DisinfectANT - Antweight First Build Log

Yea i dunno what i was thinking with M1... the model maker in me is showing through... Im making things too delicate. I am going to try and open up to 1.6 and find some better screws! Even if they stick out the top a little, i think the teeth will be the first things to make contact anyway. Learning...
