Well, I finally got the parts and the camera at the same place at the same time.
On the left are the guts of my Lost in Space Robot. This project will be stalled until I stumble across more parts. I may have misled you in my previous posts. I don't actually go dumpster diving. Unless maybe the part is visible :D
On the right is the nose cone for a new, yet unnamed project. Spikey. Hmm, now that I typed that, that might be the name! Or maybe Spikor (?). Anyway the base just below the spike is a perfect match for 2" mailing tube. The shoulder is a bit smaller. I'm doing to embed the latter in either foam or epoxy to bond it to a short section of tube. The exposed spike is 15" long. This build will proceed immediately.
