Stepper & Motor Bot eBay buy list October 2015

This is the buy list as at 23rd October 2015. It requires some soldering, cutting and drilling, needs batteries and some small nuts & bolts. It is not a list for novice construction. At present we are on prototypes Mk2 with at least one more round of prototyping before we get to a test release. I’ll post pictures as soon as I can so you can see how they are assembled and instructions should appear once we have a final version 1.
