this is my first post to this website. it's good to be able to announce my findings on a site that people will actualy see. i have detailed progress notes on my robots construction at my website http://www.clarkober.com/robotics.htm check it out. i will be posting my newest ideas and progress notes on this site now :)
hmm, that reminds me. i ordered a new gearbox and wheel coupler yesterday. i hope that the new gearbox will make my robot drive in straigter lines. with the addition of new 6" wheel and the wheel couplings, i can add my encoder disks and also add a straight thrugh 1/2" aluminum rod as an axel instead of a 1/2" bolt on each side. i think this is what caused one of my motors to grind it's insides away.
