Bargain Store Project #49 Clothes Dryer Gravity Car

In this episode I use a plastic clothes dryer from my local bargain store as the base for a gravity powered car. I make the wheels with disks cut from polystyrene pizza trays. This is the third gravity powered car I have made.

Main components
plastic clothes dryer
polystyrene pizza trays
flower canes
fishing weights
fishing line

Main tools used
Hot glue gun
Hobby knife

Clearly many parts of the world do not have polystyrene pizza trays. They are just the packaging that my local supermarkets use for pizzas. I use them because they are free and would otherwise be thrown away. You could use any polystyrene or styrofoam packaging you can find or even buy foam board from model shops. The foam I am using is about 5mm thick.

Generally my projects are for my grandchildren to enjoy. OK, I enjoy them too. If anybody else likes them, that is a bonus. I like to keep my work as simple and basic as possible so that it can be copied easily and improved by anybody who wants to try themselves. I recycle or repurpose items rather than buy new and when I do buy I like to keep it cheap.
