Yeah as Dave said, busy, v busy.
Sorry its probably gona be one of those......we started cutting the first peice of wood and then the next entry its finished!

We have started constructing the chassis. At the moment current issues is the amount of grinder disks I am going though. I barely did any metal work and I went though 3 disks instantly. The only place where I can get disks locally is wicks and they charge 5 quid for 3! So over the weekend I will pop into town and grab some more in bulk from a cheaper supplier. If they are rubbish then I have to put up with wicks and buy the dam disks.

Also realized that my next event is approaching. Robots live 7th of Feb is a few weeks away and Trojan needs a bit of work. New front scoop.

After a failure of the hydraulic pump back in 2008 Mantis was put aside to be repaired on a later date. Now Mantis wil return to the arena in Fairford. It has lost some weight in batteries and gained some in armour, but if our scale is correct we should still be under the 100kg mark.

It's ready to go. Rick has put the finishing touches on it last night. Click on the thumbnail for the full photo album.

Digging up an old thread.

Wilhelm's Scream came to life for the first time today! It's a rickety, pretty badly made little thing, but it has a charm of its own (like all my robots, I guess!)

:D
