Thank you so much! I hadn't thought of it that way, I was putting the mount in first! Very clever to design it like that. Thanks so much. All we have to do now is make it!

Felt it was time for something a little on the weirder side for a robot:


A chainsaw wielding ant! Using a bosch nanoblade connected to an 1806 motor, at the moment just static in the chassis. This version is very much a simply get something working one rather than what I'd aim for for serious competition. My next step will be to turn this into a walker to gain the weight to actuate the saw.

I'll do a test video once the proper batteries for it turn up.

This looks awesome!! Funnily enough, I was wondering the other day how effective power tool wielding ants could be, considering they would be up against mostly plastic. Any ideas for a name yet?
