For this chapter in the Dynamo Men saga, the mechanism – a double Geneva Stop – came first.
You can find information on the stop here … https://www.robives.com/mechanisms/geneva
After some careful cutting and sanding, and an hour of tuning, I managed to come up with a working assembly. And then it was on to putting a couple Dynamo Men to work.
I had them facing each other on a platform. Boring. Been there, done that. So I flipped one to create a parallel universe. And because this kind of arrangement can only exist in a zero-gravity environment,
Space Station Dynamo Men became the title for the lamp.
The red balls were an afterthought embellishment, but I think they’re the icing on the cake. Besides generating power for the light bulb, the guys are now exercising with “medicine balls”.
As you’ll see in the video … https://vimeo.com/183931326 ... their timing has to be exact.
