Good News

So I told my friends that I was on the lookout for track making materials. My friend Dan told me that his former neighbour was throwing  out an old treadmill. After checking it out, and managing to put it in my car. I am now the proud owner of an old shitty treadmill, well actually now its  old shitty treadmill pieces.  New plan, use the treadmill following the initial outline from Steve Tyng’s T34 tank build. link Some changes I want to make are to cast the internal track pieces in plastic and the outside in rubber from a template initially made out of wood, I’ll also see if I can cast the internal wheels in plastic. If I have anything left over ill donate it to anyone trying to build a Tracked Bot. Below are pictures of the mangled treadmill.
