I successfully made the buggy from the raspberry pi website: https://projects.raspberrypi.org/en/projects/build-a-buggy and I am happy with it because it works and everything.

BUT the chassis is made out of... well it looks like particle board, probably with asbestos, whatever material it is I do not to like it.

Does anyone know of a set (like erector sets but not that exact set) that I can build a chassis out of that is made out of a better material?

    your question has nothing to do with Raspberry Pi .... why are you asking it here? – jsotola Jun 15 at 17:14
  • It won't contain asbestos if made in the UK. Asbestos is completely banned here. – Dougie Jun 15 at 18:23
  • Well, the Rpi buggy project tutorial says the following: "... but in this project, a cardboard box is used as a temporary solution, ...". The cardboard box looks ugly and damages the reputation of projects.raspberrypi.org. Perhaps you can google a deluxe model to replace the ugly thing. – tlfong01 Jun 16 at 1:12
  • @jsotola it is the pi buggy which is a pi project, but you are right, this question would be better on the pi forums. Oops, my asking in the wrong place was unintentional. – thecanmanisback2 Jun 16 at 2:06
  • @dougie the chassis was made in China... but that is good to know that it is banned in the uk – thecanmanisback2 Jun 16 at 2:07
