LEGO with Friends: The Excavator, Episode 4

Tested’s Sean Charlesworth steps in to join Simone and Angus to tackle the LEGO Excavator set–finally, progress! But even Sean isn’t prepared for the level of LEGO geekery that Angus brings to the build table.

  1. I had that pneumatic backhoe that Sean was talking about when I was a kid! Was my favourite kit ever.

    Oh and I caved in and bought this excavator kit a few weeks ago after seeing how awesome that first part of the build looked >_>

    Looking forward to starting it but I have a huge list of other stuff I ought to be getting on with!

    (*psst*… backhoe)

  2. fave adhesive: hide glue! i like its properties a lot – it’s strong, it’s removable (important in quality woodworking: the ability to take joints apart for replacing broken parts), it has this very nice feel to it at the end of its working time window, when it starts cooling down and gelling. also, it’s a simple and natural product that’s been around for ages. and the process of using it is beautifully ritualistic.

  3. Simone, You should totally work with Lego Mindstorm EV3 for Lego robotics. You can make lots of crazy robots with that. I’d love to see what you come up with.

  4. Do you have any more episodes of the LEGO Excavator set? I can’t wait to see more of this LEGO with Friends build!

  5. Riding on a buss watching on my iphone with earbuds, volume on MAX and I still can’t make out whats being said 95% of the time!

  6. Favorite adhesive is the Tesa 61395 double sided tape. It’s perfect for most materials, but metal, glass and plastics in particular. It is very very thin and is very durable.
