Fidget – Hints

Dear friend! Thank you for backing our Nautilus Project on Kickstarter. Here is the assembly instruction for the “Diving Helm Fidget” and the “Nautilus Model”

    

Release the elements of the fidget carefully.

Take one side of the helm and the two longer screws and put them into the slots as shown.
Attention! Make sure the letter “N” is corresponding the picture (i.e. flipped)

Put the two shorter screws into the slots as shown

 

Put the bigger gear and the screw nut on the right-hand short screw, and the smaller gear on the left-hand short screw, so that the gears match. Then put the figured element on the lower long screw.

Cover the elements with the second half of the helm. Make sure all the screws have “found” their slots.

Relax and Enjoy! 😊

Release the elements of the model carefully.

Take two “window” elements (one carved and one uncarved). Put the carved one above the uncarved and adjust these to the windows of the submarine carcass using the long screws. You might need to use glue for this step to fix the elements. Using the glue on the screws is enough but you can also adjust every element with a little bit of glue.

Put the two remaining “window” elements on the outstanding screws on the other side of the model. Remember to put the carved piece on the uncarved.

Use the following elements as shown to adjust the paddles. You also might need to use the glue for this step.

This is what you must have assembled till this moment and we‘re almost done!
Put the remaining round elements into the holes on the lower side of the submarine. Please be especially careful while fulfilling this step. Insert the edges of the “rings” in the holes not vertically, but laterally, first inserting the edges into the side holes and then moving them towards the middle.

Adjust the foot and the base to the submarine.
