Drumsticks
« on: November 18, 2022, 19:30:34 »
Another group of accessories I have found frustrating are drumsticks. Similar shaped parts go by a number of names. Here is what I found out. I like my details in tables, so you can compare things easily. I don't have a red 'width guage' and I didn't measure every type of drumstick...


At that moment the ship suddenly stopped rocking and swaying, the engine pitch settled down to a gentle hum. 'Hey Ford.' said Zaphod, 'that sounds good. Have you worked out the controls on this boat?' 'No,' said Ford, 'I just stopped fiddling with them.' (With thanks to Douglas Adams)

Great work again, and, as you've discovered a drumstick can lead another life in the field of construction vehicles and diesel locos.

Pic? I can't visualise how that could be part of a plant.

Great work.  I bought some of those magenta and green drum sticks on line a few years back. They're great 8-)
