You gotta wonder how he can think up things like that, and then go and make all the parts even the chains and assemble them so they all work in-sinc?
And here I can’t even cut a board straight….......................LOL

Gary I saw this guy a few years ago with a thing-a-ma-jig, it didn’t do anything except amaze people. It had every kind of gear, lever, slide etc etc that you could ever think or dream of. Pretty cool! It’s actual on the same U tube page.

bummer that he says “functional but not practical” at the end…i guess he cant get the blad to move fast enough to cut wood??? I also like the chain—-with that ingenuity I think he would be real good at making puzzles and marble toys (cant think of the name of the toys that drop a ball and it goes through all kinds of mechaninisms)...

fun stuff…

What a device! While the chains were really cool, I think it might be more efficient and quieter to just have one bar hinged at both ends. It wouldn’t look as cool, though. Still, amazing work.

Also, I think he has about $80,000 in Festool stacked up back there ;)
