comment How do i organize all my LEGO bricks and parts?
@KRyan right now that's possibly true (its pattern of link-only answers suggests otherwise, however). My point was that your request is future-oriented, "in the future if you lose interest in your blog the links will become useless", but in that even they'll also likely lose interest in this site. The willingness to spam links into duplicate questions is also bad.

comment How much tension can I expect to get out of a lego chain before it starts to give away?
If you can accommodate them, the Technic wide track links are significantly stronger

@KRyan but if "The BrickBlogger" loses interest in its blog, it is unlikely to care about this answer. So why would it bother working to make this answer useful in that case?

comment What LEGO sets/blocks to buy?
I'd also look for second hand Lego to bulk things up and also give kids something to play with that doesn't have instructions. Some schools are very into teaching obedience and need a bit of prompting to let students be creative.

comment Where can I get threads compatible with LEGO pulleys?
Do you need rubber bands, string, or both? If you need long rubber bands you may have to either loop them together and use wheels instead of pulleys, or use Lego chain links or tread links to make arbitrarily long loops

comment What is the best way to rebuild Lego sets?
FWIW if you have a lot of really small parts a final sifting using a tennis racquet or similar can split the last layer into two groups which helps a lot.

I'm not sure "six year old" and "everything in ziplock bags" is going to work. Bigger plastic containers would be more likely to work IMO.

@CreationEdge I didn't realise those inventories were so readily available, thanks for that.

comment Identification please
Can you please link to where you found this information, since your answers seem so definite that you're using a database rather than memory. That helps us all learn how to answer these questions ourselves rather than just coming back here hundreds of times with new photos. Thanks.

comment What is wrong with a Lego pneumatics system that won't go?
I fear that after "oiled it with vegetable oil" you've ruled out help from Lego, and you've done something few of us have ever done. Typically vegetable oil oxidises and turns sticky when exposed to air, so you may need to clean that off and use silicon grease like the stuff Lego uses.
