ALLEN STEEL ROCKS MY SOCKS!
went and got 33 pounds of aluminum today. quite fun. w00t! saw 114 there. quite exciting. the allen is doing well…and so is the horizontal band saw
more designing stuff
the ramps are ramping up (haha) and we found some SWEET springs that do the job of the hinges very neatly…though at the moment they are secured rather precariously…but we covered them up and put a nice “do not touch this without safety glasses or else” sign on it so we are good to go.
as for the arm, it is also looking good. more finalizing of design, so basically all we need to do now is put it together. YAYNESS!
tomorrow:IDEO at 5.30. we will be welding a frame, welding an arm, drilling some stuff, laithing some other stuff, and doing generally exciting things.
(vague stuff to be exact)
get EXCITED! the ACTUAL robot is coming together!!!!
over and out
