Tamiya universal plate standoffs?
June 16, 2011
I finally got around to starting my first robot (years after i wanted to), after a long detour in playing with microcontrollers to do a bunch of other stuff. :-p
I ordered most of the parts i need from pololu but now i've found that i need standoffs to add a second tier to my tamiya plate chassis. I have the tamiya track set and the universal plate set but the standoffs i ordered won't work because they are only 3/16" of threading and the plate is 1/8" thick leaving only 1/16" to try to screw a nut on.
I was thinkign about modifying the holes on the plate somehow either by drilling and screwing into another material that is only 1/8" thick mounted to the top or underside of it, but that seems overly complicated. Any suggestions?
