Buy, Sell, and Trade Robot Parts

Posted 10 Nov 2004 at 17:44 UTC by steve Share This

Trying to find a new set of gear motors or an LCD panel for your next robot project? Trying to sell those extra IR sensors that have been sitting around for a year? Bill Cole of the Dallas Personal Robotics Group has created a mailing list called roboticmarket for robot builders to buy, sell, donate, and trade just about anything related to robotics. Most of the big robotics discussion forums like comp.robotics.misc and the SRS or DPRG mailing lists are primarily for technical discussions and discourage commercial buy/sell type posts. On the other hand, while eBay is great for finding some types of robotics items, it doesn't provide a way to trade or easily find a local part. Have fun - and tell 'em sent you when you sign up.

Sounds like a good idea.

As I understand it a lot of roboticists are heavily using eBay as a trading market that has all of the infrastructure in place for doing the deals.
