A small update on the robot. Haven’t quite got round to doing his hands, he does now have a giant machine gun however, which is just as good really.
Here’re some more of the wobot, now with arms! I had planned to mould some pieces for the lower arms and legs but some 28mm copper piping seems to do the job just as well.
I also soldered some brass together for the elbow joints. The arms are able to move and be posed which is handy.
I’ll be adding detailing to the pipes and I think it needs some shoulder pads too. Oh, and some hands and feet 😉
There’s a company called Cog o Two that I’ve seen at a few events recently that sell laser cut pieces. It’s aimed primarily at the steampunk community so they do alot of cogs and clock parts, that kind of thing.
However I had the idea to use them to build a robot. This is really just a quick and simple project (hopefully) so it’s constructed from a variety of bits and pieces – there’s some drain tubing in there, the lids of some spray paint cans and a few other bits and pieces.
