|Here are the most recent doings on Morphling.
|Here is Morphling's new lifting forks.
|Here is Morphling's new grabbing claw.
It grabbed a Colson tire with decent
authority, so a foam filled tire should be
easy to puncture and keep ahold on to.
|In the beginning, a bunch of parts and pieces
and a frame concept.
|Here the the frame actually welded together with the bearings, sprockets, motors, and
actuator test fitted in. I should add in dates of the pics, but that would make too many
people go 'How long did this been taking you?'
|Here is my home-made kill switch and the OSMC speed control that I bought.
|The front plate for Morphling is .25" steel and the lifting forks are 3/4" cold-rolled rod. I
need to get a new pic showing the arms for the lifting mechanism.
