Why does the pin recess on the Technic turntable continue to the edge of the part?
Seeing how LEGO parts are injection molded, I'd say it's because the mold has to be moved away from the part without damaging it. So if the recess weren't there, the mold would just plow through the part in question.
Is there a place where you can buy single pieces of LEGO-compatible systems?
I didn't realize there's a forum for that, I'll try that. But I fear I won't be able to get several dozens of one piece this way.
