Daisy Chain

Wed, 10 Dec 2014

Ha! Look at that!
I built a second co-axial gearbox for photograph purposes and linked it to the first one. The two of them fit together nicely. The first box halves the rotation speed, the second box halves it again. You could probably daisy-chain a few more before friction stopped rotation. Nice!
Anyway, photography complete I'll be posting the model very shortly.

    Don’t add too many gears in

    Don't add too many gears in there Rob, or the last one might never move!

      Never say never,

      Never say never, Smelter,

      Perhpas, in Rob's mechanism too, it may turn in a trillion years. Excellent daisy chain idea in this new paper design and a mind boglling metal gear video clip.

      I have a feeling that our creative community will add some very interesting character to this beautiful looking working mechanism.
