Stacks of aquariums. Stacks of LEGO. Stacks of movies. Missing a stack of books. My life is like a game of Jenga.

comment Has anyone automated the LEGO hand sorting process beyond “pawing & piling”?
I've considered building a pigeon hole sorting station inside a stepvan. I'm not sure if it would ever pay for itself though.

comment How do I remove a racing helmet from a garbage can?
Yes. The blade was used as a lever. Since I failed to mention that I wanted to get the helmet out safely and would ask how to do that here, I ended up with a proud teen and a couple of scratched elements...

Sadly, our helmet is flipped 180 degrees from your picture. All I see is the round top and nothing else.

I suppose NASA would be on the outskirts of the Town/City theme, but there it is...

comment When and where was the first “official” fan organized Lego Convention held?
+1. Although BrickCon is the longest consecutively running yearly Lego Con in North America, I'm not sure that it was the first fan organized Lego convention.

+1 for your answer, but Josh's storage consideration angle caused me to swap my acceptance.

@pcantin lol. I saw your test posted on my local LUG site. I rushed over here to post it, but somehow, you already knew about it...

comment How do I remove orange (rust?) stains from white elements?
UPDATE: Buried the bricks in question while building for this weekends display. Will need to wait to disassemble MOC before a pic can be posted.

comment How do I remove orange (rust?) stains from white elements?
So far I tried a warm soapy water scrub with a soft toothbrush... Still have orange stains. Thankfully, there was no litter box aroma. I shy away from those yard sales. ;)

comment How can I motorize City-scale wheels?
+1 I was just about to edit what I thought was a typo until I looked it up. You really did mean it's a ATtiny chip. :)

Thanks for the pics. I bet you've gained a ton of build time by reducing your sort time. I like the size of the footprint of your device as well . It's much smaller than the behemoth I have in mind.

Actually, I was asking about rubber wheeled LEGO monorails in general.

@Nick2253 That sounds like the makings of an answer. I'm planning on asking this question at the Brickcon convention next month. The monorail guys put a lot of miles on their models.
