Meccano Challenge 2015

78 RPM Competition

Your task is to produce a device to play a 78 rpm record. As per the originals it will need to be powered by clockwork.

A suitable record will be provided along with a supply of needles.

The rest, as they say, is up to you.

You will be allowed greater freedom than usual regarding the use of non-Meccano parts.  For example electronic pickups and actual soundboxes can be used though, of course, should anyone manage to replicate a soundbox in Meccano, that actually works, that should confer an advantage in the voting.

The winner will be decided at our November meeting, by popular vote, and will be awarded The Founder's Trophy, along with a bottle of fine wine from Chris Bourne’s private stocks.
