Team 1072 (Harker Robotics Team)'s bot: Tork

This is our first year doing FIRST, and we're really proud that our bot works

It lifts boxes, stacks, and even traps people against walls!

Not very fast, but our strategy does not rely on stacking anyways.

I like your method for changing orientation of the box(s)

As a veteran of FIRST, I must say, protect those cables in back. They will get hit with something, at their mounting point, when you least want it too, with the worst possible results.

You have a lot of weight you can work with, even if you are at 130lbs. If you have a drill press, put some symmetric holes in those side plates with a decent size hole saw. If that's 1/8" aluminum I can forsee about 5-7lbs you can drill out of those plates.

You look like you may have a decent CoG, so if you do drill out those plates, add weight at the bottom. But by all means, Protect those mounting points for the cables holding your stacker system.

we actually spent alot of time screwing with the CoG, not cause it was top-heavy, but cause it kept tipping backwards. you want us to protect the cable going up to the pulley? or the pneumatics tubing?
