Where to Find "C" Like Wheel Bracket

(1/1)

getSurreal:
I'm looking for brackets similar to the ones on the NASA K10 Rover http://lunarscience.nasa.gov/roboticrecon/robotic-tech that would fit on Traxxas RC type wheels.  Anyone seen something like that for sale?

sohailsameja:
if you know exactly how it looks it could me made in any hardware garage

jwatte:
You're going to have to make or get the brackets separate from the wheel adapters.
RC wheels use one of two standards: Either a fix-pin on a shaft, or a "hex" that goes into the hub. Neither is a standard used anywhere else, where you will have keyways, or D shafts, and/or set screws and shaft collars (and perhaps press fit for bearings.)

For a robot suspension I'm working on, I ended up making adapters from a D shaft with set screw to 14 mm hex center by milling out of aluminum and drilling/tapping holes for the set screws. I then cut the brackets out of aluminum on a mill, too.

getSurreal:
Hey jwatte,

I had replied on your post at pololu about those hubs, which reminds me I did find some more hubs that might work, but I haven't tried them yet.

I'll have to go over to that other thread and put the link there as well.

I'm realizing this project will require a lot of custom work.  Oh well, more opportunities to learn and buy new tools.  :D
