Had a near miss the other day when a student was using a Ball Joint Extractor. It was under so much FORCE it decided to let go in a hurry.
This is a great simple image to use as a starting point for discussions on the different loads on our work at any given point in time.

Nuts and Bolts hold the world together. It is my first unit in Year 9/10 and the students enjoy the challenge of learning all about the different fasteners. Here is a video for the humble Bolt.

.....and I then thought the school can also access Onshape and a much more sophisticated product could be made so I had a bash at some Badge Designs in Onshape.
This little Badge (which is part of a Shield) is for a student Challenge in my Automotive Studies class.
