Mark Anderson paid a flying trip last week to service the Home of the Wriggler kit. The dynamo from the large bike had finally broken following major usage in schools. Mark tracked down a replacement from a washing machine repair shop in Stirchley (the dynamo is in fact a washing machine motor run backwards). Craig picked it up at the end of last week, leaving us with the challenge of fitting a wheel for the drive belt to run around. Here is the advantage of being located within a metal working factory. We gave the problem to Clive, he ferried to the A E Harris tool-shop and when we arrived for work on Tuesday morning, like a scene some industrial fairytale, it was lying completed on our workbench ready for fitting.
Now we're trying to do a similar engineering job on the show's text.
