Disagreeable Sheep – In the pipeline

Wed, 8 Aug 2012

Nemesis to the Agreeable Sheep, the disagreeable sheep is the same as her friendly sister but with evil eyebrows. Oh, and when you turn the crank she shakes her head with an emphatic 'No!'


The disagreeable sheep uses a version of the Flip Flop mechanism and is coming to a computer near you soon!


The next logical step is the indecisive sheep. This would be a challenging mechanism! Turn the crank and she either nods or shakes her head depending on the position of the dial on the front of the box. Could be interesting! 

Another possibility, perhaps even better, turn the handle continuously and the sheep gives three nods then three shakes then three nods… properly indecisive!

    well i think the disagreeable

    well i think the disagreeable sheep should be a black sheep like how Michael's is but if it was white it would be easy for us to add color to it before we printed it out.now the indecisive sheep sounds interesting, the only way i could see it being possible is if the push rods had tabs or something and could be detached from the sheep then the dial could move the drive shaft over to the other mechanism and be reattached to the sheep so they would be like 2 separate mechanisms attached to one drive shaft

      I don’t think this is a good

      I don't think this is a good mechanism to make… Oh wait perhaps it is. I'm so indecisive! Can't wait till I get it… I think.

      Good comment!, No wait… (We can play this game all day! :-)- RI

      Yes, definitely black. I love the indecisive angle. I love all three!
