#496 Favourite Brick Friday: 3873 Technic, Link Tread

This week's favourite brick is the technic link tread, a piece where multiple are usually connected together to form treads, chains or conveyor belts. However, their unique shape and holes present on the piece lend themselves to another incredible use.



These holes are the perfect size to connect to the bottom of a 1x3 or 1x4 plate/tile, which therefore lends the piece for use in curved techniques. This is because the treads can be hooked around gears and a circular building surface is created, that Mansur Soeleman has utilised in his 'The Hungarian Parliament'
