Thanks for the reminder - that'll be a doddle to conform to.

Got hold of some Stanley blades, but I might have to drill holes in them so that I can fit them to the robot's polycarbonate armour.

Oh that's so cool. Did the light sensors give you much trouble?

Yeah I know - the idea is to use them partly as pushing weapons, partly as something to keep the body of the robot safe from attacks that get close and personal, and also for impaling the robots with weaker armour.... And don't worry about us, we'll be careful. And if we enter it into a competition ...

Hi! Back again!

Chris and I have kind of given up on the disc idea for the time being... because we can't find one. Oh well.

We're thinking of attaching static blades instead for pushing, impaling, etc. Which would be more practical - Stanley knife blades or small sharp stainless steel knife blades?

Sorry for double-posting but it's been ages.

We are having trouble finding the bast WASHERS to use for our wheels. We have rubber ones but they push against the servo and the wheel falls off. We also tried a metal one but it seemed to get worse, any suggestions please?

Nick.

Nick-it might just be a case of rewording the project to get it usable as coursework, which is what i had to do for A-level. Once i reworded it, it was accepted (on third time of asking!) That won't work because the design uses 'pre-manufactured components'. And yes I started being what some people...

Here Pete Collier, I may not be an experienced builder but I would be happy to help with the workload, as I do know HTML to a reasonable degree.
