Here are some of the items 3847 has purchased this season from some non-FRC suppliers.
Belts from VBeltGuys.com
We started using them in 2018 and haven’t looked back. Their timing belts are cheaper than every other source we have found and they have nearly every length and width you could want. Combined with 3D printed pulleys these have made there way on to many parts of our robots over the past few seasons.
A 70 tooth, 5mm pitch, 9mm wide HTD belt is 350-5M-09. The 350 is the belt circumference which is tooth count multiplied by pitch.
USB Wide Angle Camera
We have been using this camera for a couple seasons as well. The wide angle lets you see a much larger portion of the field while driving.

Cheap PTFE Sheet
This is way cheaper than the comparable product from McMaster and from our brief testing seems as slippery on the ball as the McMaster stuff. It’s possible it’s not pure PTFE but it’s what we are planning to use on our robot.
