    Brick de-yellowing techniques

    As far as i know you need UV light to make the reaction happen. I used 3% hydrogen peroxide and de-yellowed the rims from my 8880. With 3% the process takes longer but is less stressing according to a friend who is working in chemistry industry. So put the rims into it for about a week. Btw due to the process H2O and O2 are created. You can see if there is H2O2 as long as there are O2 bubbles on your parts. A light bulb would help as long as it emits UV light. I also thought about getting one of these UV light sterilisers with a tray for fluids.
  2. \m/ \m/ I wonder how this got through Legos QA. With this issue in mind... the protest of the anti war organisation might came in the right moment. But that's pure speculation. Back to the topic. Thanks for the review and the link colllection.

    Could you explain the mechanism of the grab. Is it pure Lego?

    Lego 2-Stroke motor

    Your own words: You want to see it. It's impossible to do with Lego bricks. You needed help so you can see it. So the conclusion is that someone posts a video where you can see it happen. That's what @Touc4nx did.
  5. @Bob De Quatre, the app seems to be available now. Thanks for the review so far.

    Can those who have the set confirm the issues described here?

    Help with Lego 5282 Controller

    Remove the rubber parts and open the controller. For safty don't forget to remove the battery. Remove the screw of at (1). At (2) the cover and the case are glued together. I used a butter knife to gently remove the cover. Remove the cover from the case. No need to remove the metal spring. Clean the marked part with rubber and alcohol. If there is rust, gently remove it with fine sand paper. Check also if all metal "fingers" have contact with the contacts on the board.

    Help with Lego 5282 Controller

    In the best case you just have to open and clean it. That's what i did when i had problems. If you are not familiar with the internals of the controller, i can post pictures how to do it latest at the end of the week.

    Technic 42043 Pneumatics

    Mine was broken too. It had micro cracks all around the bottom. Lego was so kind to send me a new pump for free. Try to fill out the form for broken parts at the Lego website.
  10. Could you these loud vibration when you adjust the position of the container? It sound and looks quiet brutal.
  11. I just realized that the gear is allowed to turn only 45°. So my solution won't work for you. But in the end you can just turn your whole mechanism and just add the two pins with pin holes. Will that work for you?

    Technic SUV, Chassis and Axles

    Would you mind to share some pictures of your work? For sharing have a look at bricksafe.com, if you don't already have a hoster or an account there. That way it makes it easier to give advice. There is also a thread dedicated to axles. Here is the link.

    It rotates. What are you missing? Are you reffering to the missing possibility to adjust the angle of the rotors?

    What about 13971 or 18976?

    [WIP] CASE IH Steiger/Quadtrac Tractor

    So far i just took care the tracks since they will determine the dimensions of the rest of the model. I rebuild them a lot. Especially the track tensioner was difficult, because too much tension means too much friction. In my case i using the same gears like @I_Igor Quadtrac and the scale is ca 1:16. If you want to use the new link treads use the large sprocket wheel as driver and the normal sprocket wheel as guides. This should be roughly to scale. If you decide to use the old link threads use to gears like in @I_Igor MOC.
