Dear friends,
I m a design Engineer at Aryans Infoway Pvt Ltd, Kerala. I m now in the design of a six legged spider. I want to buy the framework for this project. Can anyone suggest where I can get it in India

To the best of my knowledge, you don't get them readymade in India.
However, a skilled worker who knows his machining could do it for you, provided you can design it (or have it designed by someone).
I remember reading an article somewhere about a guy in the U.S. who made exactly the same thing(6-legged spider) pretty well, using a rather rudimentary (by U.S. standards) machine shop, and pretty cheap too. In fact, the whole article was about how it's easy to do such things on your own...

Depends what u are looking for .

Guy from my college had built a six legged for less than RS 200 ( including batteries ) and won a DC legged competition race too.

What kind of machines do you have access too ? other wise lynxmotion is your best friend.

Yeah, lynxmotion is good if you want completely readymade parts.
