  1. I am back with more of the lesser known/made MOC's. I looked and looked and found mostly minifig size stuff and a few all Technic builds. So I went on a search for power tools. Had a few ideas on which to make, settled on four. Trying to make them all to a same "scale" was a challenge as 2 of them don't really scale well as some functions are small in regular size. But I pushed forward and came out with four tools to help you build Lego dreams. They are: Band saw. I had trouble with a "band" to use. I used chain links for the blade as I didn't want to buy a big O-ring. So to make the chain spin, I used the type 2 turntable. That gave me enough diameter for a close scale, but it adds to the thickness of the build. It has a blade guide that can adjust up and down. The top turntable can be cranked lower to allow replacing of the "blade". The power is transmitted via an old O-ring I had. Table Saw. The swinging cradle for the blade and motor proved to be hard as the real ones have a crescent slider with the center of the arch at the top of the table. So for the scale, I had to use pins and make swing that way. The rest of the build is straight forward; that blade tilts, raises, and lowers. Drill Press. This was the hardest one to do! The sliding spindle made it real hard for this scale. I ended up using one of the new hubs because the axle slides in it . Then I had to make a way to move the shaft down and have it automatically return. I was able to with a gear rack and some tiny rubber bands. Last was how to get three speeds of power transmission. Using another old O-ring, I had to work out the pullies. Wood Lathe. Last and the easiest by far! I could have chose to do a more modern power system with a variable speed, but that would require the train remote and take a way from the design. I was unable to do the closed triple pully as the space of the scale prevented the use of the grey pully. So I just used a big and small double bevel gear. Here the links to the videos of them Band Saw, Lathe, Table Saw, and Drill Press. More pictures on Bricksafe.
