My nephew is a senior in high school and wants to be an engineer.
He's not sure which type (mechanical, electronic, automation, ..etc) so we decided to build a pinball machine.
It is the perfect project IMHO.
We're both huge Mad Max fans so the theme was decided about 30 seconds after the project was decided.
We got my brother in law on board to do the art, and we're off to the races.
We set a timeline of 9 months to completion and are going to try our best to achieve that.
We're about 2 months in and have the virtual/solidworks design done(hopefully).
Maybe we should count our 9 months starting now
Anyhoo, hope some peeps will like our build.
