Bot Building - General Discussion / Re: Gypsy Reference
« on: May 07, 2019, 12:22:23 PM »
Good day Bot engineers:
Dropping in during good weather is hard to do, however i had a thought.
Gypsy parts are all but dried up and gone forever.
This winter i would be willing to "Experiment" and incur the cost to Tool-Up a Gypsy Parts Mold(s).
My mold(s) would "Copy-Exact" in Fiberglass Parts.
Ah, The Mold!
You want Exact copy(s) of the parts? i only need the Original parts to copy from.
8 out 10 chance the Original will survive the "Plug Mold" making process with little damage.

The reproduced part(s) would likely be no Thicker the the original piece(s).
The weight of the parts would be a few ounces more per part.

Whoever wishes to Donate/Loan the part(s) to be reproduced will get the surviving parts back and one heck of a deal on laminated parts for life......

By September i like to have winter projects planned, you Engineers have till then to think about who is kicking down Original part(s).

Best i can do for the Forum.
Besides, i love the smell of Catillised Resin in the morning...........     Cheers.

Still have a bit of 305 Resin left, i may make a few more.
I try to do my best for the Crow builders sourcing parts. Happy Crow building!

New Servos came in, picked up a few new ones.
Heavy duty but a tad too much noise on this first run.
Charles T Crow is reminding us of Easter coming up......

Been reading and following your current Crow project, well done sir !
Read up on this HydroSpan material, very interesting and dam handy it seems.
I would be most interested in resin cast copys of this current Crow, please keep me in mind, id like to help you off-set some of your cost of your R&D.

Buy / Sell / Trade / Cast Soap Dish(s) For Sale
« on: March 09, 2019, 05:52:04 PM »
Found 4 in my cabinet fresh out of the mold couple years back.
There is NO BACK PLATE with this part, I use Black Felt, covers well and gives me access.
I know alot of you build Crow as the Puppet he is, and Vacuformed may work just fine for you.
I use Smooth-On series 300 casting resin, finished part sands like ABS plastic and is Very LIGHT Weight!
Primer/paint ready.
This IS an EXACT copy of the Schwarz Bros Soap Dish, ONLY the inside edges were smoothed out.
I do not make these for a living, when i make them for myself, i continue the run till the Resin is gone. 
Color is Black and this weighs in @70Grams. (Real Soap Dish Weighs More!)

These 4 are gone as of 3/15/19

Two original pins one is unmolested, the other has the PVC fitting installed and has a small crack in the pin where it is inserted. and these are both Crown pins and the color is green.

Two original Claw movements, these are the real toy(s), complete ones about 2' long where you squeeze the handle and the claw works.

Need soap dish, Resin or original, no Vacu-formed.

Crow T. Robot / My Crow project finely starts
« on: May 22, 2015, 11:56:19 PM »
Hi guys
Well after years of waiting to retire, i get to play now.
Crow construction is about to start, most parts due in next week.
Have servo controlled eyes and mouth slated for install.
Between Ebay and Google search found most parts.
A lot of sources emails do not work, and some just plain do not get back to you.
Will be posting Pics as progress proceeds.
Parts from the Bot makers back east look to be scarce, all tough they sure sell the assembled ones every week! @ 5 Bones average, bigger money in selling completed Bots than to us small guys looking to buy a part or two.
