Mouse Machine Mechanism Prototype

First draft of the Mouse Machine mechanism. I've put together a model as a test of the layout I sketched out earlier. The mouse will fit on the base plate and will appear to be operating the crank as the handle is turned.


There were a couple of problems with the first draft.

Mouse Machine #1. Model Proposal.

Proposal for a new animated paper model.

I'm planning a couple of models that will bring my Paper Mice to life starting with this Mouse Machine #1. There will be three Mech Gears all at 90° to each other so the layout of parts should be interesting! The flat gear will be underneath the top of the box so that the mouse will have a fixed surface to stand on. I'll then cut a couple of slots in the box top for the teeth of the other two gears to mesh through. Should be fun!

Oh - and Happy New Year everyone!

Thank you to #1Niece Meredith who sent through this video she took of the Christmas display at Harrods London.

Search the Shop!

Sharp-eyed web site watchers will have noticed a few changes to the site over the last week or so. I still have fairly long list of things I'm updating but I thought I would bring your attention to this new feature. The website has had a search box for almost as long as it has existed but I have now added a special search box just for the shop. Enter your search term and click apply to bring up all the related models - I'm hoping you'll find this new feature really useful! Check it out here.
