Nuts And Bots - Robots and components!

Post by Shakey » Fri Nov 03, 2017 5:51 pm

Hi Roboteers,

I'm launching Nuts And Bots.

A webstore selling my wide variety of parts and ready to run robots. While my main focus is in antweights, I have and plan to add products for the larger weight classes.

Currently sporting 3 different antweights, a range of ant parts and my ever in demand Argos Drill Mounts.

Thankyou,
Alex

Yeah, that batch moved slowly by comparison clocking 3 hours 20 mins of being in stock. :S The demand is a bit ridiculous to keep up with!

The New NanoTwo LT is now stocked:

This ESC is a receiverless version of the reliable and competitive NanoTwo V2.

Wheels
Just a minor note that this afternoon I managed to solve a quality issue that was causing prints to be a bit rougher (No affect on strength or function) and a higher failure rate in production. I have now fixed this resulting in a much nicer finish and with a far better production rate to get through orders faster.

Nuts & bots has been suffering difficulties with its suppliers for a good portion of this year after repeated failings on the motor supply side and the earlier issues with a component discontinuation hitting the NanoTwo V3's. Things are looking up though! The new NanoTwo LT's are much more reliably sourced and we continue to receive batches more regularly, once motor supplies can be iron out the selection of ready made robots can return to the store!

Wheels: Wheels across the board have gone through some standardisation and improvements, the 30mm wheels are now lighter, and with less likely hood of the tyre rolling off the hub. I'm also excited to release the 50mm wheels onto the store to hopefully enable people to get cracking on a bigger variety of robots. Other behind the scenes improvements to the tooling used to make wheels should see them fit more accurately and consistently. https://nutsandbots.co.uk/product/50mm-toughhub-wheels/

Big Wheeled Pusher: 10 or so of these bots will be available in a week or two on the store. Using half speed motors with double diameter wheels they are equal speed to our regular pushers but come with a new robust polycarbonate plate chassis. Of course nothing stops you from fitting your own faster motors or weapons mounted on top for your bot to take it to the next level!

I'll now actually be making use of the facebook page for the store, most updates and stuff like stock announcements are likely only to be shown here and on the page so if you are a FB person give it a follow: https://www.facebook.com/NutsAndBotsRobotics/
