Thank you Oliv for the nice post. 🤠

This was my way of thanking you for all of your contributions to the Forum. 

This workshop has virtually traveled around the world—France to Australia to Dallas and now back home to France!

I hope to see a video of it running with one of your French Engines some day. 

And I am very happy that it all made it without any shipping damage.

Thank you Petri 🙂

No need to be convinced that ALL toys , 50 years ago and before, were made for educational purpose as well ...
That was the smartest way to learn interesting things : playing smartly ... 😊

I can get that, computers, computer games, Internet opening new mind areas ... bla bla ...

The point is, when I see our students now, even our PHD students, trying to solder a resistor on a wire, trying to drill a ø 1.6mmm hole on a PCB , or manipulating liquid nitrogen ,
or even screwing a M3 bolt .... that is a scary vision of our future !  😇
And those skills won't be acquired on computers...
