My wife is a teacher and they are doing a module on electricity. Now the students have a project to make an electric car and of course the teacher has to make an example. So I get home Monday night after work and my wife tells me that she needs and electric car with either 2 speeds or forward and reverse. Right away I knew she wanted me to do it so instead of asking that I asked, “when do you need it for?” “Tmoorrow, was her answer.”
Ah Crap, so off to the garage I went to rummage through the scrap bin. My wife already had a little motor and some pully’s which I used for the wheels. I gave her a hard time about the short notice but it was fun doing a quick project and not having to worry about tight joints and a perfect finish. Plus it was for eduction so that a plus. If the kids at school don’t destroy it I’ll pass it to my kids.
I made the forward/reverse model.
Laugh at it all you want, I won’t be insulted.
I wonder if I can get a gouvernment grant for make an enviromentaly friendly electric vehicle. LOL
