Two Tooth Ratchet to Download and Make.

A new and interesting paper mechanism to download and make. Pull the tab and the drive wheel advances hald a turn at a time with a satisfying "Tick – Tock!" Because the mechanism turns the wheel half a turn it makes the mechanism perfect for automata with two states, Up/down, in/out, 1/0, left/right. Check out the website to see the YouTube video.

Members can download this model for free! More info…
