#1096 TECHNIQUES: Interesting part connections

Today we'll be looking at 2 interesting part connections that can allow for some brilliant building techniques. They may be classed as 'illegal' in the LEGO world, meaning they put stress on the pieces, but the stress is very minimal with these two and we like the results they produce.



The first is by James Shields, who attaches bar holders with clips to 1 by plates, allowing him to create cylindrical shapes such as Hoth Turrets: https://www.flickr.com/photos/lostcarpark/28081506526/in/photolist-JMt4xC-JMowcj-qu2Y2H-px3w5j-vUWFxZ-HU5agb-8XH16S-8XGZSL-HU38j8-8XDWWH-8XDXz8-8XH1UU-8XDXJg-8XDYo4-8XH2ob-8XH1F5-BYAwU2-BxuuDv-B7KPLx-BvDR66-BWSVA4-C5aAXv-8XE87a-C5afjg-C2RV7q-yVzptH-BUzsMw-8XE7TD-zfkHp3-BC3oeu-C2Sjdf-BC385w-C5aMvV-C5aKRn-zeqwLG-BUyU5C-BvE9in-C2RHv9-BUzN2U-B7DV37-B7Leca-C5aD44-C2RK7f-C2RLjq-BC3cA5-BvDyeF-C5aTaF-yir6jJ-C5akPz-B9AojX


The second is by Chris Crowley, who wedges lever pieces inside the anti-studs of plates, allowing him to connect plates upside down. This was used in his B-Wing MOC: https://www.flickr.com/photos/153182633@N04/38917127781/in/dateposted/
