They have a lot of used and surplus items including power wheelchairs which is what I used for the base.

Could you pass the location and hours of the EDS surplus store? It might be worth making a run.

Interesting, I am trying to do the same thing.  I hope to use arduino to implement facial tracking.  I found an older Telemetrics unit at EDS for $10 that has hefty motors with pot feed back.  The control actually used +/-10vdc analog signals for each axis on those older units - pretty easy to hack. Unfortunately EDS is a crap shoot for finding the same thing twice. When I was last at their Arlington location, they had 1 or 2 more of a side mount type for $10.

I just saw this pan and tilt mechanism on sale at MCM. Is this a good deal
or does anyone know of a better one?  Specs: max load: 22 lbs, price: $30 +
shipping. I was thinking of using this as the neck joint for the big robot

    What size pipe did you bring to the meeting on Saturday? I remember 2
sizes but thought that a specific size would scale properly to a 6 foot
