« Part 5: Big Dog Part 6 of "Automaton" series Part 7: What's inside »

It works! That doesn’t always happen, for me! I still have a little tweaking to do on one cam, but this is pretty much how it will operate. I’ll be able to start on the painting and finishing next, which shouldn’t be too bad.

Of course, one of the things that slows me down, is all the “testing” I just have to do! So, as a thank you to those that have followed my blog, I decided to post a little preview of it in action. Thanks for eeveryone’s encouragement and comments!

That’s adorable! The machinery makes it sound like he’s snapping his fingers while he dances.

I love these things! They are almost as much fun to make as they are to watch and operate.
