Serendipity played a big part in the building of this 'bot. While digging through the mounds of metal at the salvage yard I first found the front face plate of the bubblegum machine thinking that it would make a cool part of some robot. However, it was almost two months later when I discovered the main body to the gum machine. I was really stoked when the two pieces fit together, and I just knew I had to build something out of it.
Many of the parts for this robot had to be designed and created such as the parts to hold the glass globe in place. The parts that would become the fenders were made from Kuchenprofi Rolling 4-Blade Herb Cutters.
If you take a look at the cutting disk on my Dremel tool, you'll notice the cutting wheel is ground down to almost nothing. Stainless steel is a very tough metal to cut through.
