Connecting the flipper to the armature.

Again we had trouble doing this we had planned on using a round bar to attach it but the bar kept snapping every time it was bent. Therefore we decided to make an “L” shaped bracket and pop rivet it into place.

Back plate

The Back of the robot is made of Aluminum, there is a slot taken out to allow the armature to move up and down freely. To remove this, we  drilled two holes and then we sawed the sides and filed down to level.
