SoundWave at Stringybark Festival 2015

I went to this to help out the MESH crew in their mission to raise their profile (outer east maker lab).


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.


Sound Wave at Boort Show Part 2

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!
