Do you want to know inexpensive way to make wheel for your robot.So this instructable can really help you .

Here in this instructables i will explain, how to make a scratch made wheel for robot.

It is 100% Home Made

Step 1: Materials Used

  • PVC Pipe (PVC pipe is used as rim ,I used 1.5 inch PVC, you can use as per your requirements.)
  • Sandal (The rubber from sandal will be used as tire
  • Screws
  • Pen Tubes(To fix motors to wheel)
  • Hobby knife

Step 2: Marking on Sandals

  • First draw a circle with same diameter of the PVC Pipe.
  • Make a square around the circle and by joining diagonals you can find the middle point.
  • Next step is , by using a drawing compass draw a circle with more diameter than the PVC from the middle point, so the second circle will be used as tire.

Step 3: Cutting

By using a hobby knife cut it carefully

Step 4: Fix It

After cutting you can see as per previous step you will have 2 rubber pieces,so you can insert one piece inside the PVC and another one you can insert outside of PVC.

Note:

The both piece will be tight enough so no need to apply any gum or something

Step 5: Making Wheel Connector

In order to hold the motor we need to make a connector.I have made the connector using Pen tubes.

To make this....

  • Cut the tube of 2 cm length
  • By using a screw fix one end of tube to the middle of wheel .
  • To ensure that the motor's shaft will be tight enough ,make a hole on the side of the tube (perpendicular to the motor shaft) and insert a screw to tight it.

If you have any doubts please refer above images

Step 6: Done !

Happy Making everyone and see you in the next project :)
