DT Learning how to construct a winding mechanism

The next step in our DT project was to learn how to make a winding mechanism so that we could make a drawbridge for the front of our castles. There were lots of different steps but working with a partner meant that we could support each other and work our way through. We learnt how to do some knots, how to cut on a fold and how make triangular prisms to hold the supports for the winding mechanism.
