Double Duster!

by MusicGirlLC

Published on March 5, 2018

We’ve all had that moment where our list of chores take longer than the hours in a day. We’ve also had that moment where we just want to move on with our cleaning, and get to the fun stuff. Well, with the Double Duster, faster cleaning is within reach. The Double Duster is a robot that has 2 arms- a revolving duster and an alternating duster. This way, not only can your Double Duster dust 2 things at once, you can go and clean something else. Before you know it, you’ll be done with cleaning- and onto the fun stuff!

Duration: 2 Hours or less

How To Make It


Part 1: Circuit

84157909 ba0e 4e7d b439 78f4c0f50359


Start with your Power Bit and your Slide Dimmer.
3056f639 c0eb 48fd 8a4e f7d70982e84d


Add your Split Wire.

On one side of the spilt, add your Servo with the hub and the arm. On the other, add your Motor with your wheel.

Part 2: Robot Construction

Find a shoebox. A regular cardboard box works too, but a shoebox would be easier. Once you have one, face it vertically and open it.

Trace and cut a hole halfway up the box about the size of your motor.

On the bottom of the other side, cut a hole that’s about twice as tall as your motor.

Finally, cut a hole at the bottom of the box. I already had a hole, so I just had to add to it.

Part 3: Putting The Circuit Into The Robot
926a1cdb 0e52 4e2c bcee 22481509b987


Snap your Power, Slide Dimmer, and Split Wire onto the board. You don’t have do this, it just helps to keep things organized.
Ae4bc0cf aea1 4c88 a4f0 836384126112


Put this in your box.
A83da53c 6cea 4f9f 9007 b33bd887bfab


Thread one end of the Split Wire through the hole. Connect this to the Servo.
34fc073a 1ea5 4de1 b73d 76f46acbbc43


Attach the Servo to the hole. You can even thread the Servo bit and Wire Spit back through the hole and put it back on the board.
5435ae3c da8f 486a 94ac b4c7d371027a


Attach the other end of the Wire Split to the Motor. Take off the wheel for now.

Grab 2 duster covers.
Cae965e4 abbd 4226 aaed 210c34f11c09


Thread the Motor through the other hole and put on the wheel.
4cc1b432 2d9f 4d7a a192 05a97a9f328e


Tape one duster cover onto the Servo arm.
1189007f 9614 4ef3 8bd6 84902976630a


Tape the other to the Wheel.
8c0f0657 23dc 4fd3 aa4f 0e7483c7eefc


You did it! Feel free to decorate, or maybe try putting different things on the Wheel and Servo! Whatever you do, I’d love to see. Please comment your remixes below- thanks for building!
