  1. I now have part 2393 (cross block with two pins) so I can build this. Rebrickable explains the difference between these rwo parts, Long or short, 79194 & 25893: https://rebrickable.com/parts/79194/plate-round-1-x-1-with-hollow-stud-and-bar-on-underside-long-space/. I do have the long version part (79194) and find that a little longer wouldn't hurt. The 1L bar with towball, 67692, is too long but it's bar fits nice and tight into 79194. So, I think I'll just cut it to length... It works for me! It only costs $0.08.
  2. Thanks for your previous answer. I have (the wrong part) 79194 that I put together with 67692, which probably makes the towball extend too long for this application?, true? The ball of the microphone has to be halfway into the pinhole? Is the shortness of the 25893 definitely required? Or (I can't tell) is it required for how the microphone fits into it?

    Questions for MOC Builders

    Use "Rebrickable" to upload your sets and parts. Build some MOCs that will challenge you. Rebrickable will tell you what parts you don't have in the inventory. You will learn some techniques. "Bricklink" and Lego "Pick a Brick are what I use. If you don't have a lot of bricks, buy some sets. Rebrickable can suggest sets to buy. Buy the ones you like. If I don't know how to build a MOC, I try building it first digitally or simultaneously with plastic.
  4. What part is used as a towball and does part # 25893 share the same pinhole? STEREO, That gear gearbox looks nice and compact, keep going with that idea. BTW, Philo has these parts for Studio: https://www.philohome.com/studio/packs.htm
  5. What "above method" are you referring to? Why add "Crystal White" and what is the formula? Thanks!

    Advice on rebuilding from bit of kits

    Sounds like the loose parts are mixed together with multiple sets. Sometimes it's easier to have only the parts from the set sorted out and front of you. Taking time to elimate unessessary parts is usually a beneficial exercise. Get them organised. This way you only have to look through a smaller amout of bricks to find what is needed per step.

    I didn't know what a Chicago screw was either, at least not what it was called.

    Yes, I had that problem too. But, I just glued some Lego plates to those 3D parts to make them work.

    See post dated Aug 31, 2021 (above). There are many others out there on the internet.
  12. You're doing fine. Just put your commas and periods where you would if you were writing Finnish.
  13. Thanks for the second video! It's very helpful and informative. I still want to know more about the "power take off". I have always had trouble with a "jerky" chain lift. I wonder if the power take off system can pull the chain by itself.?
  14. I would very much like to know what is going on with your chain lift at about 18:20- 18:28! I'm seeing an axle driving the 40 tooth gear at the top. What is that mechanism doing? I'm not seeing all of it. I find it very interesting!
