Leg Support #2
Roy & Dwight Blair
Here's another way of building a support for the rubber legs without
welding. The entire robot stands on a 3/4" thick wood base
that is 34" X 34" .
Four 4" ABS pipe couplings with the sides cut to fit inside
the treadsection are bolted to the base and 4" ABS pipes are
bolted to the couplings.
The treadsections fit over the ABS setup.
Knees and upper knee plates are bolted down.
A sub-waisteplate cut down the middle for ease of installation into
the first rib of the legs has four more couplings attached.
This fits on top of the ABS pipes (shown without legs).
The sub-waistplate, regular waistplate and donut are all fastened
together sandwiching the top flange of the legs between the sub-waistplate
and the regular waistplate
This setup fits on top of the ABS pipes.
Base can be "landscaped" with model railroad scenery.
This also provides a steady base in case your Robot is going to
be standing on carpet.
