I may make a bigger one later, but I would need my mech engineering teacher to approve me using that much of his steel, and his help. But it would be fun.
Either way, building a meter tall one is good because I can keep it.
I have to have my plans drawn up by Friday (the 22nd), but I am going to start (and finish?) then tonight.
NOTE: Free FAT plans do not exist on the internet. Mine will mostly
be bullshitted, but I am basing the plan off dimensions from the one on this site: http://www.trebuchet.com/10101
I wrote them down on a little sticky note, which turns out to be all I need for a plan, and I showed it to my Mech Engineering teacher who glanced at it and said they looked good. The irony is my physics teacher (who this project is for) wants detailed, to scale plans, from every angle.
All I need is a sticky note with a few crappy drawings....
