Another day, another animated lamp.

Nothing much to say other than … TAKE THAT, TODD RASNER.
Your entry-level lamp was okay …

... but you really need to pick up the pace if you want to play with the big boys.

Watch the video to see how it’s done, sonny … https://vimeo.com/141481035

Your turn. :-)

Nice John!
One of the two guys is working twice as hard.
How do cut all of your gears?

You turn those things out faster than I could even hope to do.

Well played my friend. You have one upped me again. Hmm. I will have to peruse my John Hutchinson plan catalog and see if I can build something to compete. You got a fat men duet here so I will have to match with a duet of my own. I may look into the animal kingdom to compete with the weight of those two. Kudos again to your architectural genius.

oldnovice: As Ivan noted, they’re sharing the job equally. I lay out my gear trains with the help of Matthias Wandel’s Gear Template Generator … http://woodgears.ca/gear_cutting/template.html ... and then use my own techniques for cutting them.
I’m getting faster because I’m doing variations on a theme. And by this time I’m getting a good feel for what will, and WILL NOT, work. The hummingbird automaton is crazy good, but it’s a little (no, a lot) out of my league. Having said that, I’m still happy with my fanfares for the common man.

Todd: You keep me going, friend. Bless you.

Ivan: Brilliant comments! You’re scoring the athletes and giving us a physics lesson.

And speaking of physics …

I shot the video at 80 frames/second, and then slowed it down to 30 frames/second to show the actual speed of movement. I couldn’t understand why the bulb was flickering in the video until it dawned on me that I was shooting at a rate higher than 60 cycles/second alternating current. How my cheapo DSLR can do that is WAAAY beyond me.

Wow, double trouble. I think it’s great one working harder that the other, so true to life. Maybe the guy one the left should be thinner since he is working harder.

Dave: He’s not working harder, just faster. Not sure about smarter. :-)

John, you hope understand that I really do like your work and pointing out the humming bird was not intended as an insult of your work! Different strokes for different folks!

Pretty neat! And the trick is in knowing if the little gear is turning the large gear, or is the large gear turning the little one!

The problem with running two guys is that now I want three.
I’m seeing three crankers tuning a driveshaft and propeller in a Yellow Submarine. I found a lampshade with some tropical fish, so that oughta do it. :-)

Thanks, Candy. Dynamo Man #1 was naked and I got a lot of complaints. :-)
