This was one of our informal quarterly meetings where our members showed off their latest Meccano creations.
At around 2:00pm we had a short committee meeting, followed by the Model Tour in which members were invited to give a short talk about their models — in particular their entries for the Secretary’s Challenge!
The Novel Motor Secretary’s Challenge
This Challenge was one that Chris Fry suggested some years ago — it had been sitting there in our Secretary’s list of unused Challenges and finally made it to the top!
It was to build a novel motor; that is, build a motor using any physical method using just Meccano — this could be Elektrikit, spring driven, weight driven, wind powered (?) — and incorporate it into a model.
