Used PLAYSKOOL PIPEWORKS Super Wheels Set 4000. This is the largest of the Pipeworks building sets.
*********************************************************************************************

Playskool Pipeworks with the unique 'click-lock' locking system is a construction toy consisting of white tubes and multi-colored connectors assembled and disassemble with a plastic wrench. Playskool dubbed it as "a kid-sized construction system that's a new toy every day!".

It was first designed by John Choong and first introduced in the 1980s. The same instruction manual was shipped with 1000, 2000 & 3000 sets but the only way to build everything in it was to purchase the Deluxe Set 3000 as it had all the necessary parts. Later in 1987 Playskool introduced the final and largest set called the Super Wheel Set 4000 consisting of 150 pieces and a new instruction manual with instructions for 45 new projects.

This IS the Super Wheel Set 4000 with the rare chrome wheels.

There are some pieces missing from the original set (1 Gripper, 1 Panel Clip, 1 Four Way, and 2 Hinged Connectors). There are 2 Panel Clips that have plastic “ears” broken off – as is shown in the pictures. Most of the parts have wear marks from hundreds of hours of use. We raised two sons who thoroughly enjoyed playing hard with this set for many years.
The original instruction manual with instructions for the different projects is included, but it has been stapled together and every page is very well worn and wrinkled (the manual is also available on-line to download).

This Super Wheels Set 4000 includes:
2- Long Tubes
30 - Medium Tubes
26 - Short Tubes
3 - Red Panels
7 - Red Caps
7 - Red Axles
11 - Red Panel Clips (1 is missing)
