In that it doesn't have any "breaker" options, yes. I struggle with those... :(

??? did you mean you improved your score by 50?

I can go 1666+ no problem. :D


I'm working on a second solution, but I don't think it will beat my first solution.

Yes and I can guess exactly how you will do it :twisted:

Yes I was going to put the word deficit in my sentence but decided not to for some reason :twisted:


I can go 1666+ no problem. :D

And 1717+ to spice it up :D

Excellent. So you can build exactly the same thing, then improve it. :lol:

How does 1777+ sound? :D

At least you got the motivating competition you were looking for. :lol:


I still have fond memories of my POC3 for 297-Vee, if you need a good example of a seesaw to dissect.
They are fairly simple, although the amount of node overlap can significantly change whether the lever "springs" into action, or just gradually takes up the slack.
You can also use free swinging bars to add/lose centrifugal force to increase/decrease the counterweight effect at specific times.

I wouldn't say I'm the expert, either. I just learned from the (mostly Russian) masters when I first started competing.
KuzyaHG builds great levers, and Votart Silak always seems to find the perfect counterweight....
(and apologies to any I may have missed mentioning - these two guys did most of my mentoring)

I was wrong. It came in $2 ahead of my first solution. :shock:

Which also means it's one of those "great" challenges.... :P


EDIT: I now have a third completely different solution.

Which means, three separate ways to score 1800+

Well now... I've managed to make a solution after looking at 297-vee. But I doubt I'll manage to get it to 1800+ which bythelee has managed three ways... I feel outgunned :D I haven't even gotten past 1700 yet :lol:

Edit: I've managed just over 1700 ^^

Sorry about that. :(

I've felt quite outclassed myself for a while now.
I just happened to hit a purple patch with this one.

Still two days for you guys to catch and pass me. :D
Assuming Mark_man hasn't already done it....

Oh, and 1818+ :lol:
