Aluminium frames, belts, pulleys?


I am building my first full scale humanoid robot, and need advice on aluminum building kits or parts.

Which is the best website or company for resources for the frames, pulleys, elbow joints etc please?

It makes sense that the first thing I need are sheets of aluminium with holes in it, nuts and bolts etc to act as a base, then hinges and pulleys and belts etc. I already have all the motors, wires, power and microcontrollers but they need to become a robot now…


You might try places like McMaster-Carr, SPD/SI, and ServoCity. If you find anywhere else with those kinds of things, we would be like to hear about it.
