found new six legged robot in progress, maybe someone interested...

Well it got me to looking. Here is a neat 1hp gas 4cycle engine from Honda http://www.smallenginewarehouse.com/product.asp?PN=GX22
that would work pretty good, especially with the clutch add on too. I'll have to think about the RC model diesel engines some more. A RC car centrifigal clutch on the end of one just might do the trick. Ill have to go check out our local hobby shops later.

Hello Dan, You remind me of my self, being an amateur radio operator, and living in an apartment can also be a challenge.
However, I respect the person who built their computer on a piece of perfboard more than the person who was able to purchase the most state-of-art machine available. That is because I remember when all personal computers were built on perfboards.
You are the thinker, as well as the doer, and your actions carry a lot more weight than all of the philosophers put together. IOW, anyone can put anything on paper, but only someone actually making a robot can say anything with authority (that is, this worked, but that fell over).
When the first electric motors were made, back in the 1840's, the builders actually had to have their wire drawn. It just wasn't commercially available. Magnets came from caves. Batteries were glass jars full of dangerous acid.
I think that you can make a bender and a shear, with improvised parts.
Keep up the good work, we are all with you 100%.

That is a fantastic machine being built there. I sure do love to see what some good all out machining efforts are like. Thanks for posting.

I appreciate anyone who creates from scratch. Some of the pictures are missing though, and all of the requests for the pdf files return a:

Is there anywhere else to find them?
