As these projects are only teaching the concept of bending plastic they are simpler. So a couple of these plastic projects count as one project. Today I started my paper towel holder. A little bit on both ends will be bend to actually hold the paper towel roll.
Today I finished my book holder. This book holder is as simple as it gets a piece of plastic bent in three places. This was my first time bending plastic. You may not see it but it is slightly and aggravatingly off a bit.
Today I finished my Pantograph. The way the I have my pantograph set up it magnifys the image copies by 1.5. If they don’t look that similar that’s because I still have to move it myself. And this was my first time using it. This project was actually pretty straight forward and I didn’t have much trouble with it.
Today I cut the anchor block and the sliding block for the pantograph and I also connected arm 1 and arm 3.
Today I connected arm 2 to arm 4. Arm 4 is the arm with the pointer. To use the pantograph you look at the pointer while holding the pencil. I connected them with a screw that goes through a washer, arm two, another washer, and arm 4.
Today I made the pencil holder for my pantograph. It is composed mainly of two dowels with semi circles in them. You loosen the screws on the ends there to fit a pencil in and tighten them to grab the pencil.
Today I drilled the holes in all of my sticks. Nothing else to say.
