It is great looking.

How about a video?

Should we all mail you a sponge?

That's looking great so far - I'd also like to see a video of it in operation Smiley

I can just about take short videos. I'm not quite sure how I would upload one.

Easy enough to set up a Youtube thread and upload to it.

I see all your photos are on photobucket. Never tried it myself but that host supports video too. Should be as simple as uploading from your device to your current account, no signing up for yourtube, some other site etc.....

Simple, yeah right, best of luck  Grin

Second water test with redesigned buckets. Some spillage but a good amount going as planned. On the basis of a successful test I have unveiled the model before the school director and have approval for working drawing stage. Onward!

Working drawings in progress. Only detail to be finalised is the bucket design. I'll report when something visually interesting happens.

Are you still having issues with the bucket design? - that's got to be really annoying?!?

Have you considered hanging the bucket off the side of the  "belt" (I know this means modifying a LOT of the design) and have them pivot on their own, so they always face up.  Then, put an arm on the side of each bucket so that as it comes down from the top, the arm is caught on a stationary post, which then tips the water out as the bucket passes it.  If I'm not clear enough, I can do some sketches to explain it better.

That sounds like it might work, but it would be major back to the drawing board time.  I think the current design will work well enough for the purpose. I found some buckets at the dollar store which should serve.

After a re-think, you could probably just go back to having the buckets on the face of the belt, inged at the ver top center of the open end, with an arm out the side at the bottom which would catch a curved slider under the collection channel to one side of the belt at the top, tipping the buckets sideways before they pass over the top.  Would involve some trial and error in the placement of the curved slider and hinge point of the bucket though.
