Wooden Gear Kinetic Sculpture

at 5:02 am. Filed under What Were They Thinking

Brett Dickins has uploaded a new video on the Mechanical Kinetic Art channel. We have featured some their moving sculptured before, this video features a number of sculptures, the first  is 9 wooden gears that rotate around themselves. There is a motor driving the sculpture which looks like it must be connected to the center gear. I am assuming that the 8 outer gears are connected with a square frame since I am assuming that the center of the outer gear locations don’t change relative to each other. Given all the different models I am not quite sure which one is my favorite.

    My brain hurts now. I can’t figure how he got the two models to extend those rods without them binding on each other’s pivot points as they pass by each other.
    Going to have to look into this more closely.

    I love them though. Very well done!

    it appears the center hub is a spiral shape allowing the rods to miss each other.

    I think the hub is an off-center pin hooked to one arm at the bottom, and the arms are stacked on top of each other with a chain like master link. That movement bent my head too!

    Nice. But back in the 60’s we used cogs of irregular shape.
