    Hey

    My name is Cosmin, I'm a member for some time and during this period I managed to gather some ideas about what I want to build, also during this time I also managed to put aside parts for the build.
    In the beginning, I was thinking about building my own actuators but this year, I got my hand on some electro-mechanical cylinders (EMC) from BOSCH Rexroth and this is the construction so far:
    10.jpg + the motors :)
    In the next days, I will post pictures specs of everything and the problems I encountered during the build.
