I found this project on Woodgears.ca and immediately decided to build one for my co-worker. Being an engineer, i had to make a few design changes such as adding the reversing gate, modifying the attachments for the links, and changing how the components were mounted.

I must admit this was a very challenging yet rewarding project.

I’ve seen a few made from metal and wanted to make one from wood. I’m guessing this runs off vacuum or compressed air, guess I’ll find out when I watch the video. Looks good.
