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.
