Ratchet Mechanism to Download and Make!

As part of my expanding range of working model mechanisms I am proud to present a downloadable ratchet mechanism. Turn the handle and the pawl moves the toothed wheel forward one tooth at a time. As always, this model is free for members to download. Non members can download the parts for a modest fee. Thank you to all the members and people who buy from the shop. I couldn't do this without you!

Movember! Downloadable 'taches!

Half way through the month of Movember, still time to grow a moustache, raise money and awareness for prostate cancer. If, like me, you forgot all about it and need to catch up with your tache cultivation then have no fear! Download a sheet of nine mos to cut out and stick on. You'll be be-tached in no time!

Still November but…

They've been selling all sorts of Christmas stuff in our local super market since the middle of September. I always tut and mutter under my breath when I see it, however… I'd just like to remind you about the Christmas pack in the shop. My excuse is that I want to give you plenty of time to make the models ready for the big day. Bah humbug.
