jesse I bought 5 ultrasonic transducers from Amazon for $6 shipped. They cam from china and took a couple of weeks to get here but at a little over a buck a piece, who can complain? I have't tested them yet though.

Joe Pardue I thought I sent a message to Tim last week, but no reply so either I didn't or used a wrong email or whatever. Anybody have a valid email address for Tim Klein?

Joe Pardue Are we going to meet in June?

If so I'd like to talk a little bit about the Arduino 101 series that I've been doing for Nuts&Volts that will finish out in December. I plan on starting a new series for 2015 that will be built partly around a novice friendly Arduino robot. We have sort of talked about something like this before, but I personally am finally in a position to really get into it so I'd like to gather whatever insights the group might have.

Billy Huddleston http://www.inmoov.fr/ Interesting! Looks like he uses servo's with a screw mechanism to convert them into linear actuators..

Michael Catlin Maybe this went into the wrong area (forums) so I'll repost it here.

Being relatively new to the Knoxville area, I don't know the best places to buy materials. In general, I am looking for square steel tubing, steel angle and extruded aluminum shapes. Is there a local metals yard that caters to the general public and offers offcuts and other selections? Nothing like taking a 20 foot long steel tube around the city in a Chevy S10. Also, are there any surplus suppliers with gears, couplings, tools, and electronic parts?

Thanks!

Billy Huddleston For metal, I use Specialty Metals & Supply Corp off of 2547 Scottish Pk, 37920 I've only gotten a few things from them. I order from http://www.speedymetals.com/ allot. I have no good source locally for gears, pulleys or couples. Ebay, mcmaster.com, sdp-si.com, qtcgears.com for those. I used oldham couplings for my Mill and cheap ebay alumn beam (helical) couplers for my router. Electronics, only places are RadioShack and Shields Electronics.
