FTDI USB-TTL Breakout For Arduino
Posted Image
This breakout board is an easy-to-use USB-TTL converter. A jumper on the board allows it to be configured to operate at either 3.3V or 5V (both power output and I/O level). The board has a standard USB connector on one end and a 6-pin female header on the other.


Small Stepper Motor

This is a small but powerful bipolar stepper motor, great for CNC and robotics applications.


2-5/8" Plastic Black Wheel

Pololu's 2-5/8" Plastic Black Wheel is made to fit servos with Futaba splines, such as the SpringRC SM-S4303R Continuous Rotation Servo. The wheels come with two rubber bands (one is a spare) that can be wrapped around the wheel to give it high friction.


Caster with 3/8" Plastic Ball
Posted Image

This small, light ball caster from Pololu uses a 3/8" diameter plastic ball. The height of the assembled kit ranges from 0.4" to 0.6".

This ball caster kit includes a black ABS housing, a 3/8" diameter plastic ball, two spacers (1/16" and 1/8" thick), and two #2 screw sets. The total height of the ball caster, 0.4", can be increased to about 0.6" using the included spacers. The two included #2 screws can be used to mount the ball caster to your chassis (the distance between the screw holes is 0.53").

Note that our ball casters are designed for small robots; they are not intended to bear more than a few pounds. With more weight than this, friction between the ball and the housing will probably keep it from rolling well.


Caster with 1/2" Plastic Ball
Posted Image
This light ball caster from Pololu uses a 1/2" diameter plastic ball. The height of the assembled kit ranges from 0.5" to 0.8".

This ball caster kit includes a black ABS housing, a 1/2" diameter plastic ball, two spacers (1/16" and 1/8" thick), and two #2 screw sets. The total height of the ball caster, 0.53", can be increased to about 0.7" using the included spacers. The two included #2 screws can be used to mount the ball caster to your chassis (the distance between the screw holes is 0.58").

Note that our ball casters are designed for small robots; they are not intended to bear more than a few pounds. With more weight than this, friction between the ball and the housing will probably keep it from rolling well.
