Styrene Legs Begun

I have most of the 3mm (.125" for us yanks) styrene work done on the main legs. I need to attach the top plates after I test all the reinforcements and glue joins. Then I will finish them up with the 1mm parts.

Wheels! Cheap Wheels!

Trust Dave Everette to come up with a great source for cheap wheels for a droid... and also a variety of wheel hub sizes (even customizable ones - provided you order the minimum.)

4-7/8" x 0.8" wheels (we're talking $6.00 to $6.80):
6mm hubs and shafts (to work with the YG-2738 motors from the styrene plans):

Main Ankles in Pieces!

Just a quick post. I got my .125" pieces of the main ankles laser cut. I re-drew Dave's plans and had them laser cut (just one set for me)

I am awaiting the main legs from the laser cutter too. Not all the pieces will be laser cut, but the important ones that need to be as square as possible are. Plus I still have to sand/file all the chamfers.
