This robot is listed both on the Lawnmower blades and Heavy rotating blades pages. Which one should it be? Christophee (talk) 14:28, July 16, 2011 (UTC)

I say Heavy Rotating Blade, like Chopper, but more destructive. ManUCrazy (talk) 18:02, July 16, 2011 (UTC)

Propeller-Head's blade was made using a leaf spring from a small truck that was 3 feet long, 4 inches wide and about 3/8" thick, and weighed 15 lbs. You can determine which category it should be in. It was very difficult to drill the four 1/2" mounting as they were case hardened. They were not as springy as I would have like, because with multiple hits against a hardened opponent they would twist. This was remedied by switching the rotation in the opposite direction to straighten it back out.

Nice to hear from you again. How did you get the blade to look like one smooth solid sheet of metal? The leaf springs I've seen look like three sheets stacked on top of one another with clips to hold them together. RA2; aka Resetti's Replicas. (My Talk) 03:33, July 17, 2011 (UTC)

This was just one leaf of a typical multiple leaf spring. They were pre-fromed into a curve when I got them from the suspension shop. Mike Konshak 03:37, July 17, 2011 (UTC)
