Small Robot Test Arena
This arena was built with a TIG welder, a Ryobi metal cutting saw, an 18v Ryobi drill and a Ryobi cordless circular saw. The arena has a 1" steel tubing frame with plywood sidewalls, a plywood floor, a lexan roof and 1/8" steel angle iron on the lower part of the walls. The arena splits into two halves and has casters mounted to one side to allow easy transport. The majority of the build was done using scrap and leftover material with the main cost being the lexan roof and 1/8" steel angle brackets. Total new material cost was less than $250.
