Scrapheap Challenge!

Why did nobody tell me they're showing a new series of every dirty-fingernailed engineering geek's favourite TV programme?

ETA: I've just realised they're only now showing the final few episodes of the series they started earlier in the year. With such a long mid-series break and minimal advertising anyone would think Channel 4 are trying to sabotage SC's viewing figures...


I think you, Alitalf (an Electrical Engineer) and Me would be a good team. Me, I have no expertise whatsoever in this field, but ask good questions (or so I've been told).

On the other hand, it would be good to have a third member of the team who could actually lift a spanner, let alone use one.
I have thought about trying to get a team together, but while I believe I could eventually complete the challenges, I would be far too slow to do it in the time limit.

I did once start working on a Robot Wars entry with some mates from Uni. That's a whole other story.
Funnily enough, I was walking past the mechanic's skip at work last week thinking what a brilliant source of Scrapheap Challenge stuff it contained!

I rescued an interesting spiral of metal which I shall put in the garden.
