Build the Back to the Future Time Machine - Issue 140-143

Oh, we have another shipment.  It was in a larger box, and that usually means we get another stupid binder.  One of these days we will get into why these binders are stupid.  Maybe we have already.  But, it has been so long...maybe you want to read about it again.

 Well, luckily this was not the case.  Some of the parts and packing material made this shipment too big to fit in their standard box.  They could have made it fit in a standard box.  Although, the feeling of expecting the stupid binder and be relieved that there was no binder is ecstatic.

Issues 140-143

By the way, we are still waiting on Issue 128...still waiting.  Anyway, here we go...

Issue 140 - Time Circuit Components

Contents of Issue 140

Tiny hands help when you have to deal with these little lightbulbs.  You also need a lot of strength.  Ideally, hands of a tree frog with strength of a bear.  Good luck. 

We also have some wire work in this issue. No, not like Yeun Woo-Ping...little tiny wires.

Issue 141 - Railroad Ties

Contents of Issue 141

Guess what.  Yep, same thing.  Although our parts came with an extra eight EP screws.  That is a lot of extras, as we normally get one, sometimes two, extra per screw.  We nearly doubled our EP screws after this shipment.  We know you are excited about the screw count.  Hold your horses, we will get to that at the end per usual.

Issue 143 - Rail

Contents of Issue 142

At this point, we do not even need to look at the build instructions.  Are we that good?  Nah, this is our fourth time doing this...and more to go.  Yay?

Issue 143 - Time Circuit Components

Contents of Issue 143

Yippee! We got two Issues with Time Circuit parts in this shipment.  Many small parts in this.  Careful with that cross piece, overtightening could bend the ends.  We found out the hard way.

This is what you have been waiting for...
