    Some interesting things among those Brian and I look forward to how you recreate one or more of them!

      John--I do search web sites like that looking for inspiration. My own personal store of unique and interesting things has almost ran dry. After 6 or 7 years of constant building, I run out of ideas.---Brian

          Thanks for that brian

          And Dan, yeah, that is a fantastic video. I am not usually one for "reboots", but I would love to see a modern HD version by some brilliant artisans.

            That motion from about 2:59 to 3:08 is interesting. Never saw that before. Too bad some of them are not clear enough to see what the whole action is.

                      Probably you need to register. All it needs is a name and an email address.

                        A lot of interesting mechanism here. Now to figure out how to build some. Eh Brian.

                          Here is another site of 19th century models of mechanical mechanisms from a museum at Cornell. I could waste way too much time looking at these.

                            This mechanism is as old as the crank - sort of. James Watt sneakily patented the ancient mechanism of the crank making it difficult for rivals to develop competing engines. Without this twin gear system competitive industrial development would have been set back years.

                              There is a set of books covering "Ingenious Mechanisms" IIRC that is the title. A lot of those are in the book. A couple of those may not be.

                              I have one 2 volume edition, I may look through again. ALL of it mostly obsolete now, as programming has replaced most mechanical gizmos, partly because it is so easy to change the actions a little bit.
                              CNC machines only go through the motions
