I don’t have a picture but we filed a lock collar down by accident while trying to file down a driveshaft and it was smoking. My friend touched it and screamed.

Is that a shaft collar screwed into a c-channel?

Oh my that looks sketchy! But it could also just be a shaft collar on the robot and he just forgot to move it.

Not the way it’s set up. That is a shaft collar being used as a nut.

I have done something similar, but used it with an axle :slight_smile:

No, that’s a random shaft collar that’s sitting there. I’ve only ever bolted a shaft collar to a c channel once and it failed terribly :slight_smile:

This happened to us on a gear on our 4-bar last year. And it was just before we were going to get inspected.

I don’t have an image of this, but my first year in vex, my team built a complete robot without using a single flat bering. We always wondered why holes were appearing in our metal where axles went. That was a tough rookie mistake.
