pic: New gearbox plates

Cut some new plates at my work, .25 stainless. Weigh about a pound each.

Very nice! Are those for your work or for a different project? They look like they’d fit on a combat robot pretty well ::safety::

It’s for a new gearbox we are testing, it’s actually based off a gearbox that 118 designed but we added a 2nd stage to make it two speed

Any specific reason you’re using stainless? That plate looks bulky enough that aluminum could work.

It’s what we mostly use at my work, and I just grabbed a piece of scrap off the pile

That’s an excellent reason.

Link to the 118 gearbox?

I don’t have it/ don’t know which one my student was talking about, I think I remember he said it was from 2014 or 2011
