    Where did you get the servos from? Just wondering.


    what is this like for picking up ball's eg. ping pong ball

    The protective layer should be peeled off after you cut your pieces. It's there to protect the surface from scratches when you work on your piece.

    its great


    this would work perfect for the delta robot im making for a final project at school.
