Cake was my first attempt to design and machine a pro-class beetleweight. Instead of using hacksawed sections of polycarbonate, I called the services of Big Blue Saw to waterjet machine the side panels and armor plates of the robot. My first experience with the lathe was turning the wheels, pullies, and hubs for the drive train.
