Thread: More Mule then Rover?

    Re: More Mule then Rover?

    Are those Teensy 2 boards on the sides? Or some Arduino Leonardo clones, perhaps?

    Ah, yes, and you even said so in your post!

    While waiting on parts for the bucket build I should think about
    rebuilding the current handheld mule remote controller.

    It's in a very sad shape.

    lucky for me, I had someone else weld the frame for me.
    and it turned out very sweet!.
    (if I did it, even using cold rolled steel it would have been spaghetti.)

    Did you cut that circular pocket on a manual mill without a rotary table? Or are there stepper motors somwhere I'm not seeing them? :-D

    Jwatte, that's one of the things that makes the 1.5 hour drive(each way) to the office worth
    the drive, the Mill has a conversational control on it(very sweet!), a lathe, surface grinder,
    and Steel in the stock rack(life is good).

    the ability to mill bearing seats or turn snap ring grooves comes in very handy with this type project.

    I only have a single axis motor drive sitting around(sabertooth 50), and
    I can't see a need to lift and dumping at the same time. so I got
    a 80A DPDT 24vdc relay to switch between motors(lift/dump) using
    the single sabertooth motor Drive.

    to simplify the first setup, I'm going to have very basic controls for the lift/dump.

    (2) toggle switches
    (1) momentary push button

    one toggle switch for Up/Down for lift
    one toggle switch for Up/Dump for bucket
    the momentary switch is an enable button.

    I have (4) 5vdc NPN inductive prox switches for each end of travels.
