It's time to meet one of the latest members of Mechanical Town, a new series from UGears: the UGears Rail Manipulator. This wooden mechanical model allows you to load crates into a train car and adjust them to within half an inch of their intended position. Thanks to the designs of actual cranes, the UGears Rail Manipulator is no ordinary toy.

When you purchase the Manipulator, you receive a kit with all the parts for assembling your crane. However, this model is more than just a decorative piece for your dresser or desk. It's also a working crane, and it comes with everything you need to keep it busy: two shipping crates, a freight car to put them in, two railroad sections, and five people. There's also a model shed to put alongside your new railway.

Not only does the set include all these parts, but it also includes the tools you need to put your model together. A wooden axis allows your crane to move, and all the gears fit together so well that you don't need glue. You also don't need to worry about investing in special crafting materials, although you may want some sandpaper or candle wax to make the edges of your gears smoother.

When it's time to assemble your model, push each of the more than 350 pieces out of their storage boards. Don't push from the middle of the parts, since that makes them snap or bend. Instead, push from the edges, and if one is stuck, loosen it carefully with a knife. Then, look over all the pieces to make sure they are in good condition. If any are broken, contact UGears for a free replacement.

Follow the step-by-step instructions to assemble your model, and visit the website for more help if you're still confused. Adults and children over the age of fourteen should be able to handle this model, but it may take several afternoons since there are so many parts.

After you've put together your model, decide whether you like the silver-white wood or you want to paint it. If you choose to paint your Manipulator, use watercolors, since they are less likely to prevent your gears from working than acrylics. Let all the parts dry completely before operating your crane to keep the colors from running and the water from interfering with your crane's motion.

Whether you're looking for a hobby and you love engineering and working with your hands or you're searching for the perfect present for a mechanically-minded teenager, the UGears Rail Manipulator is your solution. Once you've assembled the Manipulator, you'll have so much fun loading its freight carriage that you'll try to lift everything else in your model Mechanical Town.
