Giving Automata the Brush
It's been a little while since an entry, but I've been quietly beavering away on the Dentist's Office project. Here is the handle for the piece.
Meanwhile the assembly is proceeding. Here is a photo of the gearbox. This time I put a few cutouts in the partition wall so the gearbox can be seen more easily. Back at it today.

I like the cut outs that let you see more of the gears. Part of the fun of watching an automata is figuring out how the gears and cams work together to produce a specific movement.

Yeah, I agree with you. I've gotten good at making a compact efficient gearbox for things but it isn't as showy as when they are all spread out. Thats why i added the cutouts.
