My current project has a little section where corn cobs are sent through a production line and the niblets are stripped off the cobs and fall deeper into the bowels of a factory for mixing. It consists of a conveyor with the cobs hanging as they move through the niblet stripping process, showing them before and after. The conveyor moves intermittently. The the conveyor pauses the cobs are stripped. One the of factory chefs manually operates the stripping machine from above the conveyor.
The is Chef Andre Cobb, a renowned niblet preparation specialist know around the plant as "The Niblet Ripper". He is just over 2" tall and turns the crank of the machinery that strips the cobs.
Below is Chef Andre Cobb lying down on the job, resting before painting, so you can see his pinned components. Apparently he sleeps with his eyes open. He looks like he could be dreaming about bench pressing at the gym.
Automata is a creative blend of my life interests , engineering, art and woodworking.
