I've been working away on things for the "Lineup". I have roughed in the floor layer with the chain and rollers enclosed. The photo below shows the assembly.
I've been jumping around a bit, designing elements as I go this time. Shown below is a wobble plate that will impart motion to a prisoner in the police station basement. The follower is a ball as it is easier to fabricate than a tapered cone to follow the wobble plate profile.
Below is the rough-in for visualization of the jail cell.
Lastly I started working on the group of eyewitnesses to the crime for the conveyor.
Automata is a creative blend of my life interests , engineering, art and woodworking.
