Hi all,

We had this brocken Dirty Devil Centrino Vacuum Cleaner. I thought, that the housing would be great to build a robot.


First of all I had to take it appart and do a little dremel work to make space for the batterie and the motors.


I bought 2 wheels in the hardware store


How to attach the wheels to the dc drive motor?

I used 2 hexagonal metal distance sleeves, and an aluminum pipe. I removed the thread vice. With glue I attached the constuction to the axle of the dc motor.

The Dc motors are insirted into a pvc pipe.

The holes of the original wheels have exact the dimension of the pcv tube. So it was no problem to install the motors.

Here a litle drive test. I have simply connect the motors to a batterie.
