Technic! Yeah!!!

Well I’ve had this LEGO Technic sign sitting around for quite a while, and I finally decided to hang it somewhere. And where would be better than above my building area?
Technic Rules!

As usual, things aren’t as easy as they appear. First, the sign is designed to be mounted on screws sticking out from the wall – it has 2 “keyholes” in the back, and as I am renting, I didn’t want to screw anything into the wall. So I had to find a way to attach a string to hang it, and worse still, one of the holes was actually damaged around the edge.
Good HoleBad Hole

But fear not! Technic to the rescue! Joining some specially crafted technic parts with a sturdy piece of string provided the perfect solution, I only wish I had that much spare LEGO string to make it a 100% LEGO solution!
Yay for Technic!

And quicker than you can say “Technic Axle 5.5 With Stop”, my sign was hanging above my workbench! Another successful Technic project!
Successful!

    Wow, I can’t imagine the “pain” you go through flipping the lids and restacking all those “tackle box” boxes.

    Someone needs some more drawers, I think… :big wink:

    P.S. the sign looks awesome, however. I’m mucho jealous… :)

    LOL, well I’m kinda used to it now, I just shuffle them betwee the 2 adjacent piles. Plus I put mostly low-use parts in those, all my high-use parts are in the drawers, and some other tackle boxes you can’t see in that pic.

Note: If your comment does not appear, it it probably because Askimet thinks it is spam. Fear not - if you let me know, I can restore it, but only up until 2 weeks after you leave it, at which time it will be automatically purged if it hasn't been restored.
