Syringe Hydraulic Arm - Send Sample Pictures

It is very seldom that I ever get a chance to see how the projects on my website are built by other people. Other than the classes I have taught using the projects which use a kit I make up do I get a chance to see completed projects, very few people ever send me pictures of the completed projects. By chance I found this image of a Syringe Hydraulic Arm that used many of the ideas from my article but is slightly different. I think that is great that people are using their own ideas too with the projects.

SERC version of Syringe Hydraulic Arm

I happened across the above image on the SERC Home School Blog which appears to be connected with the Smithsonian which is closed down now because of the government shutdown. It also appears that the hydraulic arm inspired from my design was used as a demo for the kids.

Syringe Hydraulic Arm I Built is my email to send image files.

  1. are there measurements for the first hydraulic arm?

  2. The building instructions give the measurements needed, I do not have a plan drawn up.
