- Been awhile since I worked on my robot. Here is my prototype
arm slides I was even thinking of putting on my Vendor page, not
sure yet if it would fly but works real well posing arms or a
motor could be installed too. The wrist mounts with an offset
piece to pivot the wrists. The arm slide simply slides in from
the front 6" hole and is sandwiched with the mounting bolts
for the rubber arm gaskets and has a 7" round flange solidered
in place. Pretty balanced with my Bill K. wrists. Mark W. claws.
Could add a rear bracket for safety, but seems to do fine just
mounted to the arm socket. Made this out of 26 gage galvanized
metal as you can see by the side pattern, top and bottom caps
to enclose it as a one pc unit, the channel is from a Verticle
blind but can add a alluminium channel instead.
- I finally have a brain! Thanks to Fred B. bubble and Paul
F. bottom plate, I was able to finish my brain for now. Plus
some homemade fingerlights, Norms brain cup and My own neck bracket
and faceplates on him are already being upgraded to Scott S. faceplates
and cam. What a scary time drilling the bubble and bottom plate,
so thanks to all that made it possible.
- Finishing brain and treadsection.

Been awhile since I had time to work on my B9, so my first project
is to finish my tread section. I plan to cover them with
26 gage galvanized so I can etch the outside for paint and leave
the inside alone. All my joints will be solidered and sanded
so no seams will show, here is a start of what I am doing, and
yes the outer side for the side panels will be the correct thickness.
Some of the other panels will be re-cut better since I started
these when I began the project 2 years almost ago,and collected
better tools and also a shop to do them in, I will also make my
own sheetmetal knee plates too. Will add more pictures on
my progress. Notice the closet in the back to store My B9
when not working on him, his own room! Thanks, Mike
