Decided to start a small robot

Not been involved in the community that much before and through I'd try.
I'm assembling a small robot and writing a blog about it and thought I'd share.
See for what I'm up to.

Good Stuff, I'm just getting involved as well. Neat blog.

Nice blog, I would like to ask, What is a good gauge of wire for the Motor Controllers Like the L298 ?
what little I know about electronics I`m think a larger gauge wire would have less resistance ?



Kits are fun but expensive. I spend my parts budget on basic parts, chips and boards.
Do you ever roll your own sensors, switches, etc?
