I think the best method is the method that works best for you.

There's lots of ways to skin a Crow :)

Alas, my way broke, so I'm lookin' to step it up a notch or two.

Crow T. Robot / I've got (broken) Crow T. Robot eyes
« Last post by toolmasterjeff on January 09, 2020, 07:16:25 PM »
The eye mechanism on my Crow recently self-destructed -- the wooden dowel that runs through the CVPC pipe snapped in two. Don't ask, I don't understand how it happened either.

I've never been totally satisfied with the eye mechanism, and am seeking ideas on a better way to re-fabricate things.

When I originally built Crow, I used Joe Crow's method, but I couldn't get the tension right and I later switched to using string attached to screen door rollers on each end of a wooden dowel. However, it's never been perfect. How should I be going about it instead?

I saw an earlier post about Bob Bukoski having the best method, but alas, his website doesn't have directions. Can someone point me to a guide for how does it? I also found Gary's YouTube guides and am considering the way he does things.

Thanks!

Seemingly the design has been deleted.

There are plenty of reproductions of the original design out there... but I very seldom see the original "retail boxed" part.

They're basically screen door springs trimmed to size.

It's been a good run.... we've been in the desert before and survived.

We'll survive this.

From the last backer update, but on twitter:

I am very hopeful for a quick turn around on this.  Another broadcaster will pick it up, hopefully not Disney...Now everyone get back to figuring out Growlers head and the Killbots body.

Edit:
And there is now an official twitch channel:

Parts Sourcing / Need help finding a fanny pincher
« Last post by Syco54645 on November 26, 2019, 03:20:43 PM »
So I am trying to collect original parts and am stuck mostly with the super rare items. One thing I am having trouble finding is the fanny pincher. Does anyone know of a good search term to use on ebay for this? Alternatively does anyone know where to find one?

Thanks

The link doesn't work anymore.  Did the file get deleted, or moved to a different URL?
