May Is Build Month!

May, the time of new flowers after April showers, is also the time for building that project you’ve been stewing on over the winter.  Spring has sprung, so it’s time to make it happen. May is Build Month!

In celebration of Build Month, Mechanical Elements is offering a 50% Discount on all our Do-It-Yourself plans!  That’s right, get the trailer or crane plans you’ve been wanting, and get them for 50% Off using the Coupon Code “Build-In-May!“.  The coupon is good only for the month of May 2017, but it’s good on everything in the Mechanical Elements Store.

So, what project have you been dreaming about?  Is it that new Utility Trailer, or maybe the ATV Hauler?

On the other hand, maybe you are considering some improvements in the shop?  (Garage or shop or where ever your man cave is.)  Maybe it’s a great new Gantry Crane so you don’t need to stumble over the engine puller any more.

Check out the great project plans here in the Mechanical Elements store (courtesy of Synthesis) and find just the right project.  It’s pretty easy when everything is 50% Off!

Build Month Details

To get your discount, just add the plans you want to your cart.  At the shopping cart, there is a place to insert coupon code “Build-In-May!” during checkout.  Just enter the code and the total will be just half the regular price.  Then, right after checkout, you can download the plans directly.  Print them, modify them, or whatever you need. We always encourage customizing projects to make them just the way you want.  Now is your chance! It’s really pretty easy to get the plans you’ve been wanting.

Thanks for stopping by.  We wish you all the best as you embark on your cool new project!  Oh, and by the way, let us know if you have any questions.  We’re always happy to help.
