Remember that this Saturday, Nov 3rd, is the monthly PARTS meeting. Details are on the PARTS web site (www.portlandrobotics.org
). This month we are having a presentation by Ivar Thorson entitled
"JIMI: A Carbon Fiber Hopping Monopod Robot". In addition, we are having the second part of our fund raising auction. This time, we have a number of interesting parts on offer, including:
3x 2' long ball lead screws with recirculating-ball nuts
2x 2' long linear slides
6x pillow blocks to support the lead screws
The parts above will be auctioned as a set. Great start for a 3 axis CNC machine or other positioning robot!
Another ball lead screw with recirculating-ball nut
Heavy duty, industrial quality limit switches
Ball reducer (1:368) with attached AC servo motor (3000RPM, 3-phase, 60W, 100VAC, 1.3A)
A couple RocketPort serial port expander PCI cards (8x DB9 RS232 ports per card)
A bunch of double-micro-switch & plunger style switches (like we auctioned off last time)
A couple data acquisition interface boxes
A bunch of linear slide blocks (without the rails)
A bunch of pillow blocks
Please bring cash or checks to buy some of this great stuff and support PARTS.
See you there!
