This week a quick look at instruction card #3 from the 1032/1033 Dacta Set. This week we get our first look at the battery box that supplies power to the motor, and build our first powered models. The inside of the card shows us several different ways to mount the motors on our favorite Lego blocks, and how to attach various gears, belts, and even axles to the motor.
These models may seem simple, they are however key to understanding how to hold a motor in place while providing power. Some of these are also fun to build and then run a full power, cautionary note… be sure that all the bricks are correctly and firmly in place. Otherwise you might find yourself playing a game of “Hide and Seek” to find the parts afterwards.
Here is a quick gallery with images for each of this weeks 4 pages… link at the bottom of the page for the full PDF.
The back of the card shows what I think is supposed to be a saw(?), and a lawnmower. The saw was easy enough to build, the lawnmower took a look longer to reverse engineer.
