Intro: The Down Right Cheap Robot Stand!

Lets face it, servos aren't all that 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!

    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.
