    good work ! On the last image, the ground floor seems completely crushed compared to the floor!

    GBC two steps

    here are some WIP picture of the chain guide. I have nothing to hold the chain over the entire length, it is just tight.

    GBC two steps

    Hello, here is my last GBC module: IMG_20191215_160937 by alex peraux, sur Flickr Why two steps ? Well nothing to do with an internal combustion engine but simply a module that works in 2 times ... It all started from an idea (not necessarily new) of a carriage lifting the balls. This cart would pick up balls from a basket, go up the slope and empty once at the top. So I started with this part. To make a round trip to the cart there are several technical options (rack, string, chain ...) I opted for the chain. But I did not want a reversal of meaning at the bottom and at the top. The chain must rotate continuously. So I positioned the chain vertically and fixed a Liftarm on it, 2 axel and pin connector to offset the grip and here I am in the axis of the sprockets. This allows a time delay at both ends (the time the Liftarm goes around the spoket). In red the hook with the cart IMG_20191215_171821 by alex peraux, sur Flickr This done, I made the chassis to hold everything. IMG_20191208_190430 by alex peraux, sur Flickr IMG_20191215_161020 by alex peraux, sur Flickr Then the second part loading the basket, a chain with Liftarm will do the trick very well. We place the top of the chain above the basket, a large input tray that can contain several tens of balls and rolls my chicken ( typically French expression ) Well almost, because what happens when the basket tilts and the loading chain is running? Well, the balls fall to the ground: the nightmare. So you have to stop the loading chain when the basket is emptied CQFD( another typically French expression ). This is where the brain is agitated and lays a magnificent removable coupling of a 24T on a worm gear ! The basket in normal position presses 3 liftarms positioned vertically, these liftarms in turn press on the end of a liftarm. This liftarm is attached to 3 studs at its other end and can rotate around this point. At the end an elastic band allows the assembly to remain in the high position when it is not pressed on it. So the basket at rest pressing on the liftarm drives the 24T on the worm gear. When the trolley lifts the basket to load the balls, it no longer presses so the 24T is no longer in contact with the worm gear. I lost you all 2 small explanatory gif (which must be downloaded because flickr does not animate them): accouplement2 by alex peraux, sur Flickr accouplement1 by alex peraux, sur Flickr or in video, the coupling / uncoupling of the 24T on the worm gear (sorry it moves a little) For more photos see my album. And 2 videos for the price of one loading the trolley: and the full video feel free to comment ! Thanks for reading me

    Nice MOC, well done and the proportions are good. This is not a machine that we often see on the forum Do you have a video in action?

    GBC Bucket

    Thank you for your answer, for the transparent front I thought about it too but I do not have the parts. I will see for a next order!

    GBC Bucket

    Hello, I present you my last module, a GBB with bucket. The original idea was to use 1 Circle Gear Rack https://brickset.com/article/23288/ which would turn "all alone" on which would be fixed a bucket to pick up the balls. The first roll was a failure, I used 8 gears at 45 ° (4x 12T and 4x 16T) to advance the Gear Rack, but the sync of the teeth was too strict for the lot of play of the whole set . There was either a crack or a Circle Gear Rack lock on the gears. So I had the revelation: put in the back of the module, a complete circle that synchronizes the teeth of all gears in front! I then had a stability problem with only 1 Gear Rack, the guide length was not enough, so I put 2 and the result was much better. At the mechanical level an XL motor rotates an axis on which is fixed a 16T and the 16T directly drives the back circle. And the back circle drives the other 3 axes equipped with 16T. At 45 ° there are 4 axes that are only for guidance. The exit is on the right rear, it can be brought to the front by continuing the guidance via panels.

    Pictures of fire service bike and ATV, ideas for MOC?

    can't see your pictures! did you share them in google ?

    Diy LED system

    you're right, this kind of micro LED is powered by 3 1.5V batteries but there is a resistance in the battery box. Powering them directly with 2x 1.5V batteries is enough to light them properly. Either you use 3 batteries and a resistance, either the 5V USB and a resistance (bigger), or just 2x 1.5V batteries without resistance!

    Diy LED system

    No, only 2 batterie 1.5v ! But you can use 5v USB with a resistor

    Diy LED system

    depending on the case, either several to illuminate a room or a single LED for a floor lamp or a detail, in any case, I cut the number of LEDs necessary and I solder wire to extend the power supply. some exemple: IMG_20180114_165709 by alex peraux, sur Flickr IMG_20180219_181605 by alex peraux, sur Flickr IMG_20180303_152846 by alex peraux, sur Flickr IMG_20180303_152957 by alex peraux, sur Flickr
