Wow! That’s the best “Smoke Grinder” I’ve ever seen! Amazing!
I wonder if he’s ever tried it with wind or water power, rather than the hand crank?
Is it possible to contact that man? I’d be interested to hear his thoughts on an engineering problem that has had me stumped for a number of years. It involves an X-rated whirligig that I made the action to, but can’t figure out how to animate. The problem is transferring the circular motion of the axle into an in-line forward and backward motion, a mere 1 1/4” would be all that’s necessary…
The only idea I came up with would be a sort of wedge shaped flywheel, that would push on the wider end and release on the tapered side. But that would have to be weighted on the narrow side in order to spin properly, and would involve a too-large housing…(sigh)
Thanks for sharing this, Greg!

woah, how long does that take to build? I bet it took years of trial and error. He said I quote” My donning achievment, I never want to make that again” Must have been a pain, but very satisfying

He must have been an engineer. Just watching it work makes my head hurt!
