I went to this to help out the MESH crew in their mission to raise their profile (outer east maker lab). http://www.knox.vic.gov.au/stringybark
I got chatting to one of the managers, told him that I had dragged a 400Kg iron sculpture to Adelaide. I showed him a picture, he wanted it so bad I went back home, picked it up and we got it off the truck with about 8 helpers walking it down two sleepers. It was a hit, the kid’s loved ringing the bell, some had to be prised off it. I spent the day helping kids make robots out of assorted techno junk.
The observant amongst my readers may have noticed the old grease gun on the inside of the curve with the handle for the plunger sticking out. This was a mistake. I was working to the wrong line on my bench when I put this in, and at the time I left it in, intending to cut off the excess later and tidy up the end. But I left it in as I liked it. Then at the Boort Show a cheeky 10 yo boy asked me what it did. I explained that SoundWave had a slow puncture and that it was a pump to blow it back up. So very seriously he pumped it a bit until I said that that looked better. So all through the show I had kids come up and ask me if it needed a pump. So SoundWave got a good pumping!
