  • PROJECT 11 - #5 Machines / machinery

    From Saturday the 19th of November post your pics with the theme "Machines / Machinery" here on this thread.
    All post must be up before midnight Saturday the 24th of November.

    For those that are not sure what is going on here below is list the basic rule/ideas.

    This is a friendly completion/project with the prize each week of fame and the chance to select the next weeks theme and winner.
    Each week a new thread with be started to announce the new theme and post your pics.
    Post two pic (or one if that is all you can muster) on the theme. The photos do not need to be award wining photos they can even be from a phone or any camera the idea is to take of photo of your interpretation of the theme not get published in a photography journal.
    The theme should be able to be photographed around the average home so no themes like water falls etc. this way it should only take people a few minutes to participate.
    The photos need to be taken within the week of the theme as the idea is to get you out there snapping not trolling through old images. You can post old images for inspiration but not as part of the comp/Project.

    If I have missed anything please post it so we can sort it out. Remember this is meant to be fun and there are no sheep stations up for grabs.

      A (very) simple machine.

      A lever (/ˈliːvər/ or US /ˈlɛvər/) is a machine consisting of a beam or rigid rod pivoted at a fixed hinge, or fulcrum. A lever is a rigid body capable of rotating on a point on itself. On the basis of the location of fulcrum, load and effort, the lever is divided into three types. It is one of the six simple machines identified by Renaissance scientists. A lever amplifies an input force to provide a greater output force, which is said to provide leverage. The ratio of the output force to the input force is the mechanical advantage of the lever.

                    For those that are not sure what is going on here I will list the basic rule/ideas.

                    Agreed, there's no sheep stations riding on this, but we do need to get the timeline sorted to avoid confusion . You never know one day we may have 20 or 30 entries.

                    If we go for 10 participants by the end of project 11, then aim for 20-30 for next years project 52 sounds achievable

                  Hello R P - I extended the Project to 1 week as per firsy post in this thread. Hopefully making it a bit easier for all who want to have a go, to have a go.

                  All post must be up before midnight Saturday the 24th of November.
                  As for what is that it is a 19th century wad punch which had been adapted from flat belt drive to electric. I use it to punch out the foam and velcro heads for our Rotary Sanders and Power Sanders. These are then glued to the sander base and shaped to look like this:

                    My first thoughts are what a big machine to just punch a few disk, but I love seeing old machines still serving a purpose.
