"The Mike J" Functional Soil Sampler
"Assembled and sold by Dave Schulpius - B9 Foundations"

Price $390 + Shipping and Packaging
Sold Out - Sorry

Im proud and honored to make available the Mike J Functional Soil Sampler.

Its designed to duplicate the animated soil sampler used by the Robot in the first season episode, Island in the Sky. It fits perfectly into the tread sections I have been selling for the past few years. You can see them below. This unit has also been tested to fit into Norm Stockwells tread sections. Installation in other treadsections should be possible but may require user modification of the mounting hardware.

This unit was first designed and built by Mike Joyce. Mike is one of the founding fathers of the B9 Robot Builders Club and owner of B9 Creations. For years Mike installed this same unit in his commercially sold full sized B9 robots. Then after Mike closed the doors of the robot division of B9 Creations, Craig Reinbrecht built and provided a limited run of this Soil Sampler with parts left over that he had obtained from Mike.

Now... with both the blessing of Mike and Craig, B9 Foundations is once again building this precision made unit!

Another interesting side note - our very own Greg Logue who is also a B9 Robot Builders Club Vendor worked for B9 Creations back In the day and built these same Soil Samplers for Mike. You can find Greg's vendor page here: Greg's Vendor page

B9 Foundations is having the needed parts for this Soil Sampler made at the same metal manufacturing plant that has always produced these parts. The unit is constructed out of precision laser cut parts. All parts have been anodized for a professional finish that will not corrode. These units will be assembled by B9 Foundations with the same attention to quality that they always have been built by both B9 Creations and Craig Reinbrecht.
