SERVO TO SHAFT
ServoCity is now offering both a 24- tooth (C1) spline and a 25-tooth
(3F/H25T) spline servo to shaft clamping
couplers for $4.99. These patented servo
to shaft couplers offer a simple and solid
way to attach a shaft in-line with the
output spline of a servo.
Also available from ServoCity is their cascading X-Rail slide kit for $119.99.
This kit provides the
necessary to build a
extendable arm. Fasten
a motor or HS-785HB
servo to the first stage
of the slide kit and
spool up the provided
synthetic cable to get
up to 34. 5" of arm
The cascading X-Rail slide kit uses
each stage is
supported by standard
V-Wheels that lock
into the chamfered
guides of the X-Rail.
The synthetic cable is routed over ultra smooth V-bearings so the torque
provided by the servo or motor can be transformed into linear thrust
rather than lost due to friction. The arm at full extension is rated for a 2 lb
load; this makes it ideal for adding a gripper or grapple hook.
The 1.25" winch pulley available for $4.99 from ServoCity works well with string or heavy-duty fishing line such as their synthetic cable. The
pulley is able to fasten to any hub or component with the 0.770"
Actobotics hub pattern. The included screws protrude through the pulley
