Universal Plate Set

This set includes a plastic plate with an 11x31 mm grid of 3 mm holes spaced 5 mm apart, which provides space for many mechanical connections. The two included eight-hole angle brackets can connect the plate to additional Universal Plates or can serve as a mounting point for an axle. The plate set also includes two shaft mounts (the triangular brackets in the picture on the right) for supporting an axle. The kit provides ten screws and ten nuts for connecting the angle brackets and shaft mounts to the plate.

This set is compatible with our gear motor brackets and motors. Check out our related products below.

    Would this fit any type of servo? And if so what types?

    What's the physical dimensions of plate set once constructed? Without the tank treads or any wheels attached, but the beige frame?

    • bobski / about 11 years ago / 1

      Overall dimensions of the plate are 60mm x 160mm x 3 mm. If one of the low-profile right-angle brackets are attached to the outer-most row of holes on the plate, it extends over the edge of the plate 2mm. If used in the same position, the taller right-angle brackets are flush with the edge of the plate.

  • This is awesome! It's the base for the tank-like line-following robot I'm making with a Dual Motor Gearbox and a Tank Tread Set from Tamiya.

    Any chance this will fit two large servos?
