You bring the 2" x 1" tubing, hex shaft, structural fasteners and gearboxes and we’ll provide the rest.
The Thrifty Bushing is a nylon bushing that works with 13.75 mm diameter style hex shaft. This bushing is recommended for low-load applications and will allow you to package mechanisms into even smaller form factors. Thriftybot recommends greasing bushings prior to use.
