Let's Make Robots!

Gift for LMR Mr.Basic Buyers

Sounds everybody is waiting for my good news.


But firstly I want to say sorry for all problems comes with Mr.Basic.


And explain what happened.

Intially our structual engineer had came arross such a problem of axle, and he asked the supplier to resend correct-spec ones, but without informing the Packing Department.

Unfortunately before the correct ones arrived, the Packing Department have packed all Mr.Basics.

Worse more, after the holiday, nobody mentioned anything to me, just asked me to send them to Taiwan.

It is such a bad experience that we should be carefully in each step of all projects.


Every LMR Mr.Basic buyers who had problems can write to me, let me know what parts are missing or not working, then I will resend all required parts to you.


Besides, everybody who ordered a Mr. Basic Promo edition (both those that works and those that did not) will get a free Mouse Robot as a gift. 


As I sorted out all mentioned parts, I will send them along with the gift next week.

Here is a copy of the e-mail I just sent to Claudia/Dagu.

Hello Claudia,

First of all: thank you to Dagu for generously offering replacement parts and an extra mouse kit for all LMR members who bought a Mr Basic. Very much appreciated.

If you could please send me the following parts (I am referring to the numbers in the manual http://letsmakerobots.com/files/Mr.BASIC-1_Page_3.jpg):
- rear axles with crown gear (# 8 in the manual): 2 pieces
- front axles with crown gear (# 7): 2 pieces
- some extra M3 nuts to replace the ones I might have damaged (# 19): about 8 or 10 pieces

About the motor gear (# 3): it's described as D2.5 L24. And they are. But some of use are having trouble connecting these with the single pinion (# 4) using the joints (# 5). I think it could all be resolved if the motor gear shafts (# 3) would be a bit longer. Maybe 25.5 or 26 mm long.

If you happen to have these gears with longer shaft in them, I'd love to give them a try.
If you have them, even if the are longer than 26 mm, I would still be interested. I'll take of any excess myself. I would need 4 of them to replace them all.

I just spent 20 minutes reassembling the drive train on one side of the vehicle, after I took it apart to measure the parts. It would be so much easier if the joints (# 5) would make a tighter fit around the shafts they are joining. The inner diameter is off by .2 or .3 mm.
Should you have better precision joints in stock, I would like 4 of those as well.

Thank you again,
