Dismantling a Wheelchair

We had a long break due to holidays and the loss of our previous work space, so the first meeting of the year featured a junked wheelchair that Doug had sourced from craigslist. The kids love nothing so much as taking the thing apart.

Sadly, once we got the motors apart, it was clear that they were too rusted to be easily salvaged. However, the wheels and frame parts may prove useful.
