The Thrifty Clamping Bearing Block provides teams a quick and easy way to capture 1.125" OD flanged bearings when mounting to 2" x 1" or 1" x 1" box extrusion. Simply drill a pass thru clearance hole and insert the bearing which is then trapped against the extrusion wall's material.
Features include -
- Two black anodized plates
- Four 10-32 1.5" long button head bolts
- Two 10-32 0.50" long bolts
Bearings are NOT included with this kit
You asked, we listened! These 3" diameter HD (heavy-duty) solid-core Compliant Wheels are intended for manipulating objects where you need a little 'give' in your intake system. These wheels deform out of the way to allow rigid objects to be manipulated easily. This makes for high-performance intakes and internal conveyors. These wheels do not require the use of expensive hubs to be driven, thanks to their integrated high strength polycarbonate hubs - which are made from the same mold that creates our Hex Molded Spacers.
Different durometer ratings give each wheel unique characteristics. Green compliant wheels (35A durometer) are the softest and most compliant around objects, while maroon (45A) blue (50A) and black (60A) wheels are increasingly firm.

This is a Heavy Duty Hex Bearing which outperforms our previous 1/2" Hex Bearings as it has a Heavy Duty Inner Race. This FR8ZZ-HexHD bearing, 1/2" hex bore, flanged, heavy duty inner race, shielded ball bearing, has an inner race that is thicker and stronger than our recent offering of a similar bearing (am-0279). This bearing has more material between the corners of the hex bore and the edge of the race making it stronger and much less likely to crack under high load.
This bearing is guaranteed to have a stronger, thicker race. 100% of these bearings have been quality checked for a smooth fit over 1/2" hex stock here at AndyMark. Many of our long-time customers will recognize this bearing, as it is the same version we sold back in 2008-2011, and we did not have any failures. Now, it is renamed and quality checked for your high load needs - including drive chassis with cantilevered wheels.
Tired of hex clamp collars that cost an arm and a leg? Tired of stripping out the set screw on your clamp collar? Need to add a collar in an assembly and don't want to remove everything from your hex shaft?
Me too! I've ran into all of the above scenarios multiple times building multiple robots. These collars are the holy grail -
This new custom designed collar clamp has been designed specifically with FIRST Robotics Competition teams in mind. This product is Out of Stock until Mid March
This 8 pack of 2.5mm thick T gussets can be used to assemble frames or other mechanisms commonly used in competitive robotics.

The original vectored intake wheel, now with even more options. This wheel design was battle tested and match proven on many FRC robots during the 2020 season. These wheels help with redirecting game objects while imparting lateral force, helping to move game pieces either left or right in the direction you desire.
Mount all the things with this latest offering from The Thrifty Bot! Finally a plate that can interface with just about any common motor or planetary gearbox in the FIRST Robotics Competition. This 4mm thick 6061 aluminum black anodized plate includes bolt mounting patterns for the following motors and planetary gearboxes:
- REV Ultraplanetary Gearbox
- REV NEO 550 & Banebots 550 Brushed motors
- VEX Versaplanetary and Versaplanetary Lite gearboxes
- AndyMark 57 Sport planetary gearboxes
- 775 series brushed motors
- REV NEO & Falcon 500 brushless motors
- Traditional Mini-CIM & CIM motors
- 4mm thick (.157") allows for stronger cantilevered applications
- 1/4" hole to hole spacing, 1/2" spacing between hole rows. Holes are .164" natively supporting #8 bolts or 5/32 rivets. Holes can be drilled out to support #10 hardware.

We are pleased to offer these new gussets that are suitable for 1" based building systems. These thoughtfully designed gussets are made from 1/8" thick 6061-T6 aluminum, which is a much stronger material than other 0.09" 5052 gussets. All of these framing gussets feature a 1" linear hole pattern, with holes suitable for either #10 screws or 3/16" rivets.
On all of the angle gussets, a generous radius was used on the inside corner for maximum strength. The various angle gussets, along with the quad and tee gusset are used together to create structures and sub-assemblies for your robot. Our bearing and Sport gussets are perfect building blocks to create a massive variety of mechanisms and assemblies to suit your needs.
