I have been interested in robots for awhile now. I am trying to get a electronics club at my school.

Hi All,

My first robot is now finished. It is a Copy Cat by Graymark. I all worked out okay. I made a few component placement mistakes. But once I fixed them it worked the way it should. My eyes are bad when it comes to real small parts. And this has lots of small parts. I found the book very easy to follow. And the test proceedures real good. I will try to get some pics to post soon. Noe for the next project. I plan on building a walker with the instructions in The Junk bots book. This is a real great book by the way. I would recomend it to evert body from a beginer to an advanced user. It has some great tips and is easy to follow the reading.


I have Found 10 commodore 64 key board units which seem to have a great deal of parts that can be used for robots. It will take some work to salvage the electronic components. But many of the transistors and capasitors and IC's look very useable. I also found 2 Timex Sinclair 1000's which have the Z80 processor. If any body has any info on how the processors can be used in a robot project. I would like to have such info.

Thanks Wayne 9/21

I'm not sure if my last post was among those to get lost or not. My name is Wayne Robbins I'm about to be 47 yrs old. I'm a full time student at ECPI Collage of Technology in Raleigh, North Carolina USA. My course of study is Network and Security Administration. I have been interrested in computers and electronics for many years. I have also wanted to learn about robots and robotics for a long time.I have foundedan electronics club at the school in hpoes of getting others there interested in robots and other forms of electronics. My project at this time is building a Graymark 603a Copy Cat robot kit. Most of the circut board is complete and I hope to get the rest done this week. I also have just recived the book , Junkbots by David Hyrnkiw. It has some very nice projects. I would recomend this book for any one starting out to learn about robots.
