Rubber Band Power conversion Grandad's Junk Pile Projects #15 1kg 10cm drop Mk 2


I decided to convert my gravity powered car to rubber band power to demonstrate the features that could benefit that type of car.

If you have a question it is probably worth reading this video description first because the answer may already be here. To help you find my videos I made two search guides https://youtu.be/ceBSOoOHcgw or https://youtu.be/Zj4UgwkwYRk or checkout my playlists page https://www.youtube.com/user/GrandadI...

Components
2 x Vinyl Long Playing Records
I used a Fibre Glass tube for my axle that came from a cheap garden windmill
2 CDs/DVDs
4 plastic bottle caps
Bamboo garden canes
2 bbq skewers
Large paperclips or similar bendable wire
Rubber band - size 64 would work well
I used kite string
I put some hot glue on the axle to help hold the LPs in place but the holes I made in them were a very tight fit anyway.

I have over 2000 videos on YouTube covering a wide range of subjects. To find them follow my search guides https://youtu.be/ceBSOoOHcgw or https://youtu.be/Zj4UgwkwYRk or see my playlists page https://www.youtube.com/user/GrandadI...
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.
