Looks like a turret plate?
It does look like a turret plate.
I looks custom made, what kind of material is it?
From the picture it looks like wood.
It’s definitely plywood, not sure what type or grade though.
It’s clearly not a functional part for the robot, and seems to be some sort of statue or sculpture of an angry god.
I think I know exactly what part that hole pattern goes to…
There is only one comment for this…
OM NOM NOM NOM!!!
they might be planning on epoxying it.
I’m guessing this is the wood prototype before the metal version for the final bot is made.
Does this part mount anywhere near the 14 lb. shooter wheel ???

im guessing plywood prototype of a turret , made on a waterjet at GKN. Im guessing the real part will be aluminum, and at least 3/8 thick(probably 1/2inch)…
couldnt have said it better myself:cool:

False, True, True, False
We set a record at the GKN waterjet; the code to make the part was 3700 characters long and took nearly 2 hours to cut. The best part is that the part came out perfectly. No need to redesign or remachine here!
well thank you:D
definitely looks like a turret plate.
It’s the plywood backing that was used to cut the 3/8 thick aluminum turret plate (a sprocket) on the GKN water jet.
The teeth look #25 pitch to me, wouldn’t that make the aluminum plate 1/8"?
It looks more like a timing belt pulley (a really really big one!) than a chain sprocket, so 3/8" makes sense.
1/8 aluminum plate sprocket
Good catch Adam. You and Ryan are correct. 3/8 would be way too heavy!
