Garnet Squadron “WorseAFrame” Hole Guides
When we needed to match the VexPro VersaFrame pattern but didn’t have time for the frame itself, we decided to fake it. And then to share it.
We had some 1" square tubing for our robot, but we still wanted to follow the VexPro VersaFrame pattern for their nice gussets and ease of use. Wanting to get this done today without sending it to our main shop at USC, we mocked up the hole pattern digitally, cut it out, attached it to our aluminum using spray adhesive, and got to drilling. With a little cleanup for public consumption, we’re sharing our “WorseAFrame” pattern for anyone else who needs a simple way to get their kids to drill straight holes.
To get the holes to match unmodified Vex gussets, you’d want to drill them with a #20 bit that may be a different size than the circle itself. But if you get the hole placement right, you can make the hole size whatever you please.
If you need longer than the 10" pieces (which we chose since most everyone has a printer that can do letter paper), simply attach them end to end and check your hole spacing at the joint.
We hope someone else finds this useful as we enter crunch time in build season!
