An earlier blog showed a pair of right angle gears I was working on for a current project. The next step was to test them and build the base that hold them. The larger gear becomes a spinning platform for many of next components of the mechanism.
Here is a quick video of the base and the gears temporarily put together. I am spinning the gears using my variable speed drill to “run-in” and test the gears.
Automata is a creative blend of my life interests , engineering, art and woodworking.
