Don't know if this has been posted before but I came across the video and found it very interesting, I have heard some people complain that model engines, etc that run but do nothing else are a waste of time (I don't agree with that) but this kind of takes it to the extreme, anyway it looked like fun to me

My apologies if this has been posted before

I have never seen that one before. Oyyy what a lot of gears. I especially like the round gear driving the square gear...

It actually does something useful. It demonstrates a lot of different types of mechanical mechanisms that are used in all kinds of devices. Young engineers could learn a lot by studying that.

Another thing it does is prove that the more parts a machine has the more breakdown prone it is. Cool machine though.

That takes me back a few years. I always liked that (and similar music) but with my hearing now can't make out the words. :-(
