I Love Watching Meshing Gears!

Check out this entertaining mechanical bank with exposed workings. This ingenious device by artist Christopher Blasius came to my attention recently from Dug North's Automata Blog


It is operated by a hand crank and does a fascinating directional change from circular motion to linear action. The artist is selling plans here and has uploaded an extensive YouTube video showing both the operation and assembly instructions. Worth a view. I'll be adding a link to David's links page for those people always looking for mechanically oriented plans.



Send us photos if you try and make one!
