Heavy Duty Mechanical Components
October 10, 2011
I'm looking to make a semi-functional heavy duty robotic arm. It's for an art project so it won't need absolute precision, it's more for aesthetics and entertainment. The arm could potentially be 4-5 feet but it wouldn't need to lift anything except itself or a flashlight.
I have a handle on programming, metal fabrication, and electronics.
What I have no clue about is where to look for joint components and related hardware. I have been reading this forum and a few other websites and most of what I see is focused on smaller scale high precision robots, or the large scale precision joints all cost $500+. I'm in the NY metro area in case anyone knows of a local spot.
