Did you calculate for forces? I used to make my robots without doing the math, and often I would end up wasting tons of time and money building something that inherently wouldnt work.

Basic force calculation:

If you give us details on your robot (pics, drawings, forces required, motors used, etc.), we might be able to help.

Using a robot arm? These might help:
