My guess is that you'll have 5499 rivets in your robot this year.

Re: pic: Rivet...Rivet...Rivet

Ok, so you are going to use a robot to hold all of those rivets together? That sounds overly complicated. Just empty them into a single bigger box.

Re: pic: Rivet...Rivet...Rivet

Once you melt all that raw metal down and cast it into robot parts, how will you connect the cast pieces together?

Re: pic: Rivet...Rivet...Rivet

...and I was expecting frogs.

Just beware those Harbor Freight rivets for high-strength applications; their quality is somewhat less than the name brands. (But for 90% of what we do with them, they are just fine. We just don't use so many....)

Re: pic: Rivet...Rivet...Rivet

We have never had a rivet failed. Even when a team hit us at full speed three times (before bumpers). No rivet sheared or broke.

lol. I have to say. Rivets stand alone above duct tape and zip ties for a lot of purposes

Wow...that many rivets reminds me of my team's 2007 robot. I heard we went through over a thousand rivets between 3 competitions.

Re: pic: Rivet...Rivet...Rivet

So what is the weight of one of those boxes?
I went to HB but did not find any details on the weight. So there is 500 in one box?

That's all one robot, or does it include the prototyping / mistakes?
Wouldn't surprise me either way.
