Square drill holes…


Nice vid’


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.

  1. We had these when I was in high school, they have been around for a long time. The bit moves freely within its holder that attaches to any drill chuck. It works because the teeth bite in randomly and cause it to go off center and form a square.
    They are really cool but are only really useful if you need a square without radii which you could do with an EDM or a broach.
