I have been working as a Mentor with high school students for a local FIRST Robotics team for a number of years. Next Tuesday, February 11, 2014 is the day that we have to bag up our robot and stop working on it. Attached are a few things that I welded together.
- The first is a kicker weldment.
This is the thing that will kick the 24” diameter ball.
- The second is the stop that will stop the kicker.
- The last is a bearing block holder to add a tail bearing to a motor, which will power the kicker. Notice the hexagonal bore in the bearing.
