So, for the umpteenth time, lets make a BNI inspired junkbot. It's easy, it's fast and it's an original and useful gift for Christmas. It lights its eyes, has a magnet in its antenna for keep clips and you can keep memos in its tweezers.
Step 1: Materials
1 metallic housing from a lamp (If you don't find any, try with a plastic or metallic saucepan and make two holes for the eyes)
2 Roll-on deodorant bottles (you will need de cap, the ball and the ball mounting)
1 PC screen base that fits by pressure into the metallic housing
2 Iron hinges
4 iron pieces for picture frame
4 small iron angles
2 alligator clips
2 big LEDs
2 resistors 220 ohm (red red brown gold) (optional)
1 AA Battery box
2 AA Batteries
1 sprayer (you can find it in a deodorant or in a can of spray paint)
1 Plastic caster
screws and nuts
Dremel Rotary Tool
And don't forget:
1. If you don't have it, replace it!
2. Use protective equipment (dust mask and goggles)
3. Beware of drilled and soldered hot surfaces
4. Work in a good ventilated area.
5. Always have junk in stock
Step 2: Making the legs
Step 3: Lower body
Disarm the caster and use the wheels for the "shoulders". Drill the center of the wheels.
Attach the wheels using long screws, and fasten with a bolt. Cut the screw, and insert a tweezer on the end. Make the two arms. Use epoxic for fixing the tweezer to the screw.
