I think for my next homebuilt robot, it would be more easy to purchase the brackets from a source that does have bulk quantities in stock, manufactured by a CNC company. That should eliminate any setup charges and off-the-shelf brackets can be an advantage. They're readily available in sizes and configurations required. It's also possible to mix and match brackets from companies, as long as they fit the servos being used and the screw holes align or new holes are drilled.

Since the topic is microcontrollers, I thought I would drop a post about Sun's Project Sun Spot - It's a controller board based on Java - may be interesting to check out. http://www.sunspotworld.com/

Sounds fantastic, "So we decided that the best way to see these and other ideas develop is to share the technology with you. Please, have fun, be inspired and enjoy"

The sun project looks good.

the only down side apart from the price is that it only used a 180 mhz arm chip if you used the new 500 mhz chip it would be a nice little product. I like the sensor input board if it had 20 output for PWM then it would be prefect for my KHR.
