Parts Like Servo City

I was wondering if anyone knew of a European / UK seller of servo mechanical attachments similar to ServoCity's stock.

and

:D

They are quite reasonably priced but shipping to UK is 50+. If I only spent a 5 on something, it doesn't make it worth while

I have looked at Protopic but I didn't see anything like these. That being said, I have missed things MANY times. I have a nasty habit of flicking through things a little too quicky. sometimes. quite often. All right ALL the time.

Out of interest, what are your favourite parts to use for rigging servos to mechanical setups?

You may not have missed them, I haven't actually ordered anything like you are after but assumed they could be on those sites. All I've been using are the lynx motion brackets.

Tony (@ToyMaker) will probably know exactly where to get them though.

ok thanks. I have just been looking a little more closely and have come across a few similar parts. I'll keep a look out for Tony and ask him as well.

Hi Jaychadw - You can purchase the parts you mentioned (aluminum channel, bearing mounts, etc) from RobotShop.com's European site. They carry almost our entire line of ActoboticsT components and they have reasonably priced shipping to your location. Hope this helps!

As Rich said, I use a lot of pre made brackets and hubs for my prototyping work, see my AIMEC thread and the new arm to see some servo bracket configurations. In the UK, Active Robots are a reliable supplier and have a really good range of servo accessories.
