Meccano exhibition 2014

Mal, VK2BMS, and I enjoyed the Meccano exhibition held in Forestville today. It was well attended and the organisers had put a lot of work in to the display.




Meccano can be used to build gearboxes and differential transmission.


This guy had made a knitting machine.


Electronics is creeping in, this machine had an Arduino at the core of it with a fantastic relay board running everything.


I remember using one of these Philips electronics kits as a child.


Circuits were built to a template with components joined with little spring things.


This electronically controlled car had everything including electric windows.


A two story elevator with doors and interlocks was built by a retired lift mechanic!


Here's Mal learning about steam engine control from a fellow amateur.
