Merry Mechanics

Lots more mechanics and “things” going on for Emily and Gramps over the last couple of weeks (am such a bad blogger; been too busy to post). The Monday before this one, they investigated the different ways wires can be joined, particularly in cars, and Gramps showed Emily how to solder, which she greatly enjoyed. She declined to use a blow torch, however!

This Monday just gone, they looked at Ackerman steering geometry, which I confess is rather above my head although Emily seems to understand it quite well. Complete with meccano models, no less! ‘Tis rather good!
