    Mech/Exoskeleton Build (Full-Size )

    Ah a kindred spirit! Looks sweet! I've been doing some research into the viability of power armor setups. I'd prolly have the full-power functioning prototype (not just the proof of concept) if I didn't have over $500 in car repairs. Really tempted just to get a concept operational and throw...

    Mech/Exoskeleton Build (Full-Size )

    After a relaxing Easter weekend I did a thing: Gonna break down the mecha and put it in the van instead of a uhaul trailer. Left bicep was torn apart, only 2 pvc elbows destroyed. That's a whopping $2 in repairs! Good example for the upcoming convention.

    Had some ridiculously high winds today. Scattered garbage cans far and wide and something else. . Finally managed to tip it over! Science! Everything looks intact! Score 1 point for solid engineering!

    Lookin awesome! I feel ya about the stilts (funnily enough I have the same type of lawn aerator shoes kicking around). Try adding a brace that goes up to just below your knee , maybe hinge it with some bungees for tension? (kinda like digigrade stilts do) Judd's shins end where mine do which...

    Its a proven fact that red stripes make things go faster. That's why there's no red tigers: they ran so fast they took off and are now orbiting the sun. A bit a surprise when NASA finds them.

    Well, he also has to see it. On the site. I like my bad puns XD Since my pinchy nerve is playing up again I might have the time today to install the optical system and get the back wheels on (rebuilding the transmission is not really required at the moment).

    Mech/Exoskeleton Build (Full-Size )

    It just hit me as I came home from hangin with my bros. Headlights played across the dooryard and I finally realized there is a giant robot sitting in the driveway. Dude. So convention is a go, but whether I can demonstrate (operate) it or not is to be determined on site/sight. Gotta prepare...

    Finally got around to finishing the cockpit door. Hung it in place and even have a system that holds it open! Did some work drilling and wobbling the mech and it stayed open. It wobbles because one leg is half an inch longer than the other D: And I had some fun with DIY stencils...

    Told 'em that in my initial letter and they still wanted it insured if con attendants were to operate it. Methinks its run by a buncha party poopers. I can always have a sign-up list to gauge interest in private lessons. Maybe start a local club of Mecha-chanics! A county faire in august has...

    Mech/Exoskeleton Build (Full-Size )

    Between some normie stuff and a pinched nerve occupying most of my Saturday (oh the joy of pain-induced hallucinations and spasms) I did some work today. Working on negotiations getting a booth at the local con but if I want congoers to try piloting it I would need to have it insured so it...
