Re: [beam] a very normal sized turbot
- You can get collars that have a set screw in them to attach the arms. Solder
the arms to the collar then slip the collar on the drive shaft and tighten
the screw. These are found at most hobby shops. This method is used a lot.
To attach other doo-dads you should use brackets and tiny screws or rivets
to increase the complexity. I'm against epoxy for mere attaching because it
violates the five laws of robotics. By The Way; all BEAM folks should take a
jewelry making class at your local junior college. You can learn all kinds
of neat-o fabrication skills. I knew a guy that took it just so he could use
the casting equipment. JohnS.

- Johns, what do you mean by Five laws of robotics? Care to explain?
