The Derby is active and ready for your submissions and voting.

10k Cup Derby #4 - Complex Simple Machines: Create a design using the 6 simple machines as your starting point. For quick reference, the six classic simple machines are as follows:

-Lever
-Wheel & axle
-Pulley
-Inclined plane
-Wedge
-Screw

Use one. Use more than one. Whatever you need to engineer something great. BTW, the Sonic Screwdriver is not a simple machine. Neither is a wedge salad. Unless the wedge salad is on a pulley. You get the idea.
