In this chapter

  • Must-have, should-have, and make-life-easier tools for your bot builder’s toolbox

  • Thumbnail guide to digital multimeters

  • Your robot workshop

  • Thumbnail guide to soldering (featuring the “solder dance”)

  • Safety first!

Now that we have some robot “back story” and have discussed some of the high-falutin’ ideas behind robot building, it’s time to put some of this into practice. Building robots is an extremely fun, challenging, and rewarding experience. But to do it well, and to do it safely, there are a few tools and techniques you have to acquire first. That’s where this chapter comes in. We’ll be running down the basic tools that any robot builder needs in his or her kit, some basic techniques you’ll need to know before tackling the projects in this book, and some safety tips you’ll want to take to heart.
