Counter weights:

Counter weights required depend on your payload but I would suggest:

  • 3No. 60x10x120mm long mild steel bar stock (approx. 500g each)
  • 2No. 60x20x120mm long mild steel bar stock (approx. 1kg each)


  • 3No. 60x20x120mm long mild steel bar stock (approx. 1kg each)

Why are these parts excluded?

All the excluded mechanical components should be available to you locally. Given the current cost of shipping heavier items internationally and the increased duty you would otherwise have to pay on the kits I believe this package will make building the system more accessible particularly for international purchasers. Postal charges are also reduced.

Local Tax liabilities:

Different countries have different Import tax systems and there may be additional import duties/taxes applied to your order when entering your country. Payment of such tax is the responsibility of the purchaser and vary from country to country.
