I am working with team 73 this year who through some unfortunate circumstances over the past few years doesn’t have a good stock of materials and/or parts. I am looking to be putting together a wish list of things which would be nice to have before the season starts. The way I see it things break into 3 major catigories: Raw Materials/Supplies, Tools, and Robot specific parts. I am looking for some input in each one of these areas so let start a list.
Raw Materials/ Supplies
1)1"x1" aluminum tube
2)3/16" aluminum plate
3)1.5" pvc pipe and assorted fittings
3)t-handle allen wrench set
lets keep adding and see what we come up with and if anyone already has a list like this please post it so we all can see.
5) Keyed Shafting 3/8" and 1/2"
6) Pillow mounted bearings for above shafts.
7) 3/8" #35 Roller chain, links, and offset links.
8) 3/4", 1" Aluminum Angle both 1/16" and 1/8"
3) Hack saw / SawzAll
4) Chain Breaker
5) Tap and Dye set
6) Keyway broach set and a press
Do we need to go through any more? This list could go on forever, and there’s a thread already about this.
3) Extra PWM cables of various lengths.
Good Luck this year!!
