How is the arm powered, I can't really tell from the pic. Sorry. by the way, we will have a hacksaw at ptree if you need to lose some weight lol.
Can't wait to see it in action.
Four, mecanum requires that each wheel has its own motor, 4 cims and gearboxes really made a dent in our weight. The arm is powered by a window motor, the large gear is actually liberated from a broken flex-plate and a piece of steel. Luckily we have a portable bandsaw for weight loss.
Seriosly though, we weighed exactly 120 lbs before shipping...
