Project 52, #1


Mark this date in the calender as I start Project 52, 13th October. Item #1 is a simple pantograph design. It allows the drawing to be scaled or shrunk x2, x3, x4 or x5. A pen can be placed at any of the three points or they can be used to trace an item. The design was then replicated 80 times to make kits for an open day at Derby Silk Mill. (svg here)

Moving the nuts and bolts around between the holes creates different scale factors. Each hole is marked with the corresponding scale so put the bolts through all the x4 holes and that's what you'll get. The verticals are pushed into place with snap type joints. The frame has been etched with the Derby Museums logo as well as a little MSRaynsford logo on one of the underside pieces.


I still need to bag up all the verticals, nuts, bolts and rubber bands but I'm waiting bags and nuts and bolts to arrive but that stuffs not even laser cut so it counts to post it now :)
