Lego Technic Set 1032 / 1033 – Week 4

Card#4_CoverThis week a quick look at instruction card #4 from the 1032/1033 Dacta Set.  For the most part there is nothing exciting about card #2.  In short several basic construction models are shown to help the builder understand basic parts use.

The models include a small 2 wheeled cart, a couple of Lego girders, and a basic gear assembly.   There are also two models on the back of the card, a simple balancing device and a gear device that creases a strip of paper.

As the balance device is similar to the on in the 1030/1031 Dacta Set, I decided to not build it.    Here are some images of the second model found on the back of card #2.

Lego Technic Set 1032 / 1033 – Week 3

Card#3_CoverThis 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.

Lego Technic Set 1030 / 1031 – Week 15

To those that saw this post on Sunday, my apologies not sure what happened to the text.

For this installment of my blog on the Dacta set 1030 / 1031 our number 15 instruction card brings us to a demonstration of leverage,  angles, gears, and pulleys.   This card includes only 1 set of instructions for a basic crane lifting a weight, but is a fine example of all the points this card covers.

Below are the instructions from the inside of the card, again there is a link at the bottom of the blog for a PDF of the entire card.

Pictures coming for the the primary model, and the secondary model on the back of the card.

Here are the full set of instructions for the Dacta 1031 Card 15.
