Hi, I'm Lawrie and I build Lego Great Ball Contraptions, make GBC videos and create GBC building instructions.

My days are spent as a Solutions Manager in Brooklyn, New York, however, my career started in the mechanical trades before moving to software engineering. My nights are spent creating Lego Great Ball Contraptions. I find it an excellent outlet for problem solving and creativity in a tangible form.

With your support, I'll be able to pursue more ideas for creating new GBC modules, instructions, guides, videos, and eventually ready-to-build kits.
Tiers
Ratio 1:1
$1 or more per month

The "1:1" support level gets my thanks and access to my Patreon exclusive videos and behind the scenes content.
I'll also give you a high-five if you see me at an event.

Ratio 3:1
$3 or more per month

"3:1" one of Lego's first great ratios.

As well as access to my Patreon exclusive videos and behind the scenes content, I'll answer your questions and email you a GBC themed christmas card each year (beware: they may contain gears).

Ratio 5:1
$5 or more per month

At ratio 5.001:1 were using those new fangled gears (with a ratio of 1.667:1) that can also be used as bevel gears.
And just for being clever you get all the benefits of "3:1" and I'll email you a card on your Birthday  (or whatever date you fill in) as well.

Ratio 10:1
$10 or more per month

For 10.002: 1 we're combining old and new gears (as well as using bricks to get the gears to mesh)

At this level you are really making a difference and as well as the 5:1 and 3:1 benefits I'll post you a physical GBC christmas card each year and email you a set of GBC instructions on your birthday. 

Ratio 30:1
$30 or more per month

For 30.006:1 we are using another 3:1 but in those new fangled bevel gears.

You are officially changing the way I produce GBC content and as well as all the previous benefits I will send you a physical GBC themed Birthday card and a buildable GBC workshop kit each Christmas.

I'll also put your name in my videos once a month and if I know you are at show go out of my way to find and thank you.

Ratio 105:1
$105 or more per month

105.021:1 uses a 40T to one of the new ring gear elements (made of 4 gear quadrants).
My goodness that is a lot of support, and I'm lost for words on how to show my appreciation, so instead I'll give you everything in the below tiers and find something GBC related to post to you each month.

Goals
$27 of $50 per month
The costs of running a website and hosting video content are covered.
