Wow only 2 more cards after this one for my Lego Technic blog on the Lego Dacta 1030 set with 1031 series cards. So lets get started with this week’s card, number 17. The card demonstrates the use of a water wheel along with gears and a pulley to move or lift objects. A quick side note, you don’t need water to see this model in action simply blow on the blades instead to get the same motion. There is also an alternative model which builds a device that “hammers” objects.
There aren’t to many water wheels around anymore so keep in mind the same mechanism is used today with modern electric motors, and combustion engines.
So here is a scan of the instruction card, and I have included a PDF file at the bottom of the blog with the full card.
A couple of pictures of the completed build.
Here are a couple of images for the model featured on the back of the card.
Well that is it for this week, oh wait here is the link for the PDF file Dacta 1031 Card 17. Take care!
