Because the Dynamo Men keep replicating themselves—don’t ask—I decided to put a few of them to work on a model of the corporate world I occupied for many years. God, I miss it … NOT !!!
Actually, this was an experiment to test the limits of a tiny 30-rpm animation motor with 15/30/60 compound gearing.
It works, so now I’m left wondering about its ultimate potential. I’ll keep experimenting until I see smoke.
The gear train alone runs like a Rolex, but hooking up the guys produced some jerking. I’m blaming that on the overachieving jerk at the front of the pack and Newtonian physics.
Could be better, but it ain’t broke, so I ain’t gonna fix it.
You’ll find the obligatory video here … https://vimeo.com/175593259
