I am looking for some whirligig plans. Anyone have any to share? I want to try cutting them out with my Laser.

Yes I seen that one.. it’s cool.. It’s probably the gearing for these that I’m most interested in finding out about. I’ve never made one or looked at the mechanism inside??

A good book on the mechanics of them is one titled Whacky Toys, Whirligigs & Whatchamacallits by Rodney Frost. I have a review of the book here.
