Diver Legs Mechanism

Wed, 15 Aug 2018

After our various summer trips I’m pleased to be back working on the diver project.  I put together a pair of legs with a tapered cross-section and bent knee.

I’ve added hinge tabs at half height at the top of the legs the fitted them to the top of the existing mechanism. A section of push-rod then links each leg to the cam sliders.

With the kicking movement working nicely the next step will be to complete the diver’s body, arms and head. Scroll down to see the Instagram animation!
