Just thought I would throw this out there after reading several posts about needing parts such as brackets, frames, and machined items such as arm/gripper assemblies... I am willing to make parts for any of your needs with a full shop at my disposal. I will do it very reasonably (typically just the cost of materials and a small fee to cover my time and shop expenses). I'm Not trying to make this a sales pitch as much as I am a public service announcement, so please take it as that, its not about the money, its about servicing the robotic hobbyist's needs for their robots by a fellow robot freak! Please feel free to contact me with any requests for parts or assemblies for the ER1 or others.
