Introduction: The Down Right Cheap Robot Stand!

About: Solving your not so everyday problems with your not so usual solutions! I like to keep my instructables simple and fun, if they are to complex no one will want to do them. Feel free to PM me or just leave co...

Lets face it, servos aren't all that strong...at least when you buy them on a budget. The last thing you want to happen is to strip the gears. A robot stand is the perfect solution...or buy metal gear servos, buuuuut this is way cheaper. It's insulated and lifts your robot off the ground.

Step 1: What You'll Need!

One of the best things about this is how cheap and simple this stand is. All you'll need is a solo cup, a ballast, and hot glue. I went with a block of 2x4.

Step 2: Let's Play With Glue!

Heat up your hot glue gun and get ready! Glue the cup to your ballast.

Step 3: Just Add Robot!

Now its all ready for your robot!

    Thanks! I have some variations of this but I figured this one was the best to make an instructables for.

    Yes, this is a good one.

    My robotics kit/book course is nearly done (it was done, but I need to update it due to a part which has become obsolete.) I will probably mention this idea, and refer the students to your Instructable, for the stand.

    I'm glad I could be of some help.
