I found this site quite by accident and was so impressed with Frits's start here robot, I decided to make my own. Now I'm hooked!
I worked in the motor trade for many years, so I find the mechanical aspect of robots fairly straight forward. I'm ok with minor electronics, but this programming business is hard.
I now run a damp proofing business, here in the uk and spend the rest of my time reading about everyone's robots here on LMR.
