Machine? Toy?

2006 • Posted by Kai @ 12:05 PM

Using the “Likework Clamshell Bucket Mechanism with a Flexible Link” principle made a clam machine/toy. Combination with two-wheel link to create a theatrical toy. The clam works ok, but sometimes the lines twisted then it will get stuck. The two-wheel link system doesn’t work because the ball is not heave enough to press the bigger wheel down. The problem is when those two wheels link to each other then the whole system will get too tight.

To solve this problem is changing different materials. Using wood to make the wheel system instead of foamcord, and using metal ball to get more weight to spin the wheel. Since that, it will costs more time and money.
