Hello from Watford UK
Hello everyone my name is Spike and I am an old retired teacher/computer engineer who is interested in CNC, Robotics and electronic projects. I have watched a number of excellent videos presented by Bill and have really learnt a lot, which has helped me in the past. While I find the mechanical side of projects quite easy to follow, I struggle at times with electronics. So I have joined the DroneBot Workshop to help improve my knowledge and skills of electronics and in particular robot based projects.
Looking forward to participating in this Forum.
Welcome to the forum Spike. Most of us here are electronics and/or software types but struggle with mechanical so you will be very popular.

Hi Spike, great to welcome you to the forum.
I am sure you will find your experiences positive and helpful.
What projects are you currently involved with?
Hi Ron - Thanks for replying to my post.
I am currently involved with creating a robotic lawn mower using bits from a WORX Landroid. The control board is missing from the Landroid so I am trying to control the remaining components using the Arduino UNO and a brushless controller board. The wheels are driven by 3 phase brushless motors. I can get the wheels to move forward but not backwards. so, I am stuck at the moment. Hopefully not for very long.
