Wall-E Head Movement Help!

Hey All,

I'm trying to finish up my Wall-E build.

I have the track/motors, arms, sonar all done.

Trying to tackle the head. All I want is simple left/right and up/down.

I've been browsing the forum and looking at as many builds but haven't got a clear picture of how people are doing this.

I can do the left/right easily, it's the up/down that I'm not sure how to carve in.

I could use a helping/guiding hand please.

Check out my Real Wall-e project page:

Look at the video of the Real Wall-e. Near the end, you'll see short snipplets of how i put together his head. You'll have to use full screen and pause on occasion - but it's all there :)


Ah! I see now!!!

I'll crack his head open tonight.


I know mine is a bit complicated to do so i didn't want to suggest it but it's something to consider, using nylon gears from Wall-E top gear box and inside neck. Scroll down a bit, there are some pictures showing how i put the neck parts together.
