How many engineers does it take to fix an Abacus?

28 Dec

One of Reagan’s favourite presents was an Abacus and Daddy broke it trying to fix it….a long story but it needed many hands to fix it after that!

So how many engineers does it take to fix an Abacus? Well apparently four and here is the proof….

 The Assembly 11 dowels 11 holes 8 hands and some of evostik’s finest wood glue!
The Video

Success, in record time…about 15 minutes actually!
Look closely and you will see it is held rigid during the drying process with 9 zip ties

I bet there are sweat shops in the back streets of Thailand with children making 2 of these a minute on their own but they won’t last like a Forster-Clarke Abacus! Now how do they work again….?
