It is the one you know. I figured I better join and show support. Plus maybe show a picture of the one piece shaft carrier for everyone to see. I mainly will be just looking and learning.....

shaft is one piece that steps up slightly. enough that I needed to tap it out even though the snap ring was removed.

lets just hope they don't screw um...they pressed on amazingly though, me and Jesus were debating super gluing them to the shaft, or maybe red lock tight

so one as to make sure you are staying in line and not running amok.

I stated metal because of this.

"Lastly, the P60 seems to have all steel gears, while the Wangs had some sort of bronzy-lookings softer stuff for gears. "

had to clear that up.

Red loctite can hold anything on. It isn't threaded though so I don't know what it would do.
Last year the weak brass pinions were our downfall.

The pinion was the down fall on one gear box. That pinion also failed only because the gears were brass. The gears stripped and then caused the pinion to break. these pinions are bigger and thicker. I could see the pinion stripping on these.

Yes, but we weren't the only ones. There were at least 3 teams who went in front of us and they couldn't even get their robot to turn on/bind.

Green Loctite should be used on anything that you do not want to come loose...

We have used it on our weapon pulleys for the past 3 years and have yet to break one loose...

The old 36mm pinions were brass and I have never had a problem with them...

The one big thing is to make sure they mesh good....

If half the pinion is not making contact then it will fail....

Wht's up with you guys not registering for Moto????

I figured you were a shoe in !

BOTH !

BTW.... I downloaded AutoCAD for Mac this morning and it only opens and works with DXF, DWG, DWT.....

So much for a complete switch...

I hate to convert back and forth between Inventor and AutoCAD DWG's

Alex,

Did you see how a few NERC competitors were a little pissed about the turtles competing again...

I guess I cant say pissed but hoping they were not coming and competing

clairton is working on things but trying to do it all in house. Of the three robots being completely designed for this year, Two have been started in metal and one is just about to be started in metal. A second year team with no platform to build off of is a big challenge to get there and compete. Its been a learning process and a costly one too.

As of now, I am trying to get myself to moto this year so that next year I can try to get at least one bot out there.
