Well I may as well start off with the first message for this list!
As I've mentioned, I get several things out of building robots. First, I
like *Creating* things! I find enjoyment in designing and building
electrical, mechanical and firmware projects. I'm looking to share and
learn with others with similar interests.
A little about my work:
I have CNC'd my Sherline mill and lathe, and I also have a larger mill and
lathe in the "downstairs" shop. I wrote the CNC control program running my
mill and lathe.
I enjoy designing working model steam engines, and once again making parts
for robots (I was first building robots in '85). I also design and write
software for several uP families.
I enjoy doing a little "pure research", and walking robots are just the
thing. I've built wheeled robots before, but this time it's LEGS!
I hope this becomes a friendly platform where we can explore software and
hardware for robots.
I'm also an Amateur Radio (Ham) operator, and enjoy building and operating
