New Challenge idea : LUSENET : Junkyard Wars : One Thread

I am writing for 9 year old Meghan, she and her 8 year old sister, Kelly, are two big fans. Meghan would like to see the teams build a motor boat. Two laps around the lake while carrying an anvil.

-- Meghan E. Ford (, February 19, 2001


Meghan, it's been done in and earlier show. If you keep watching the programs, you may get to see it when they show it again. The "Long Brothers" and "Art Attack" teams built boats and had a race with them. Waddy, with the "Rusty Juveniles" chunkin' pumpkins.

(pumps up waddy's brain air pressure back up to 20psi) actually wasn't it the metal medics that did the boat against art attack? :)

-- Ryan Gavigan (, February 20, 2001.

Yes, it was the Metal Medics that we raced against. The British "power boats" will be on this next monday night at 8: PST

ive just seen a portable saw mill in action,and it looks buildable in a who can cut the most planks in an certain amount of time would be a good show.or one man dirigables,you just have to supply the outer skin and inside bladders.

I'm going to ignore that "two anvils and a coyote, er, passenger" idea and say that maybe a portable saw mill would be pretty cool. Still, it's a very dangerous machine. Maybe they could do it in conjunction with the premier of the British version of "E.R.".

I DONT LIKE SEEING NON Junkyard parts in a junkyard, like the altitude IC chips used in the rockets and the prefab ROCKET engines, Like the 4 perfectly new lawnmower engines used in the harvest.... I would like to see some crative inventions NOT HIGH TECH, I go to my day job as an electrical engineer for high tech. Id like to see more LOW TECH JUNKYARD FUN. I want to see alot of good welding, teamwork, good ideas, and new events, its a junk yard you can make computers in a junk yard. "KEEP IT SIMPLE" The best JUNKYARD THEORY!

-- Dave Ashman (, July 25, 2001.

How about something electric Like a Tesla coil made from junk or Coil gun would be easy to make from junk like old pole pigs "Distribution tranformers."coppertubing PVC pipe or even cardboard carpet tubes and magnetwire or maybe a CO2 laser as a project I belive would be doable in scrap but will need glass working knowage.
