    Default SAWTA School Watch instruction document?

    I was browsing the web a few weeks ago and came accross this clip:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BuqnJJJYkWQ

    It is a SAWTA watch school video showing the development and build process required for, I believe, a school watch.

    If you look at the video, you will see that it appears to be following a nice instruction manual. Before each step, the camera pans to the appropriate section or chapter of the booklet which seems to have some detail regarding the techniques and also includes diagrams.

    Does anyone know if this document is available online or to purchase? or any more details about it?

    Cool video!

    My guess is that the manual is part of the course material and may be available from one of the schools listed at the end of the video. I see they are all in the US which might make it difficult since you are in the UK.

    Yes, it is a great video and if you look at the other 2 he has posted, they are both worth watching as well.

    Yes, I would have investigated more first before posting on here had it been UK based but I was hoping someone on your side may have some more info...or ideally the course material!

    I have not found other 2 videos, but I did find one making 2 arm balance wheel but I could not find the other 2 for that as well. Try to search for these is impossible.

    I mean the other two videos on that users account, one is the balance wheel:

    and the school watch collection by students at the SAWTA school:

    I expect the other two videos for the balance will be posted soon!
