Idea for a new challenge - variations on a forklift : LUSENET : Junkyard Wars : One Thread

Challenge is to build a device to retrieve a weighty object from a platform, move to a second location and deposit object on a second platform. Task gives several options or challenges to be overcome: power (human or engine), design (mechanical or hydraulic) and movement (powered v. pulled by the blokes).

One thing I *don't* like to see is a 'salted' junkyard. Let me tell ya', nobody but nobody sends a bronze propeller to a junkyard, 'specially ones already marked with diameter and pitch. Finding so many props doesn't look right....
