2018-10-30 (Tu) Magnet Fish Spectacular

Teammate Angeliki also made a fish without any assistance to see what kind of differences we would have. Her fish used a colander for the top and a foam disc for the base. Her fish already had a magnet installed inside, and she also made a fishing rod with a magnet lure.

Fish head and friend

To allow the fish mouth to open wider, part of the back was cut away with a bandsaw. This was done in an apartment workshop, and some lockpicking may have been necessary to use the power tools.

Modified fish head

The flat head of the fish was still an issue so the removed plastic was boiled to find out if it could be reformed and hold a new shape. When the plastic was heated, it was held with a towel and bent. When it cooled, the plastic did hold the bent shape. Hopefully, a heat gun will be able to make the top of the fish into a rounded shape.
