Step 6: Assembling first half of the arm:
Use five small nails to piece together the first half of the arm. This Half is made of two standardized sticks and one lolly stick.
In this step, place the first hydraulic over the inner nails and the second one over the outer nails.

Step 8:
Take the top end of an after bottle and glue it into place on the rotating base. Secure the arm onto the base using hot glue.

For the lifting device an electron magnate is used. If you can’t find one, coil some wire around a metal screw for a makeshift electro-magnet.

Step 9:
Thread the wires of the magnet through the hole at the end of the arm and take them towards the back.

Step 10:
To rotate the base, glue another wire tidy to the edge of the tin lid and then prepare the third hydraulic. Use another perler bead and a nail to hole the hydraulic in place.

Step 11: Connect the hydraulics.
Use 3 lumps of 3mm tubing. Once you have connected, fill the tubing with water and connect the arm to the controller syringes.
