Motorized mechanismsgreenspun.com : LUSENET : ideas how to make motorised things : One Thread
I for one am interested in motorized and other forms of mechanical mechanism that derive their power from a single rotating power source. Such machines can be powered by electric, clock-work, water, or gas motors and can do a variety of different things and may employ belts, cams, gears, levers, clutches, feed-screws, lever-based power transmittion, etc. to acheive varations end results. Ever taken apart an old-fashioned sewing machine? These things are excellent examples/ideas for doing something complicated from a sing rotating power supply.
