Aluminium box section /printed drive mounts.

Aluminium box section /printed drive mounts.

Think these should be tough enough for robowars Cool






















So the bolts/nuts on the top hold the abs in position to stop the print from sliding out of the ali.

The bottom bolts will attach through the bottom of the robot and they go through the ali shell and into the nuts on the bottom….you can tighten them as hard as you want and there is no risk of cracking the abs cause the ali is taking all the pressure and the abs is just stoping the nut from spinning….i reckon it will be pretty tough…the ali box section is reinforcing the abs…..cheap light weight and should be tough….especially after acetone gassing the abs. Very Happy

oh yeah ..the bolts are 12mm long 1/4" bolts…i tested with regular nuts and nylocks ,both work perfect.

if i measure up some stuff and throw money at you can you make some for me

Lack of workshop means making even simple parts is a chore

Just realised the drives i have are those new drills with the adjustable screw thread clutch on the front

Oh wells the rear section will still be useful

Could it be upsized for hammerdrill drives?

I love it.

Myles, Could I also chuck a bunch of money at you and get mounts (standard old drill motor style)?

My probably moving states very soon kinda strips me of time and tools.
