I smell "school project".

I'd guess that the authors worked together on the task, and only took one set of photographs between them, but all wrote them up separately to hand in to their teacher.

We've had similar before, thougb not usually so similar (I remembef a class set of catapults, where they also has to include their measurements and calculations of range and speed).

Those are by three different people, and they are almost certainly a class project.

Instructables strongly encourages teachers to use the platform in their class, both for students to find projects to build, and for students to document projects they create themselves.

Yes, Liquid, it seems that some persons think that they must REPUBLISH their instructables after an edition.
