  • I love this module! I'm trying to reverse enigneer it, but main question is how to split the big 140 tooth banana gear in to twelwe sections in order to get synchronised feeder of the balls with the "sun". I can see that the ball feeder is not turning with constant velocity and that those "swinging" gears have somehing to do with it, but for now I can't see how. Will have to think some more. Again - fantastic and intrigueing mechanism. Best regards. Miha

    • MajklSpajkl “floating-point operation” often interrupt mechanical engineering. I hope you enjoy it. It’s 10:00 AM in Japan. Good morning ( っ'ω'c)

    • Arghhhh - it is getting kinda late and I'm not thinking straight anymore - both versions are the same - gears between diff and 140t are idlers and could be whatever the size as long as they are the same. Online gear calculator got me tricked into thinking those are not the same solutions as it gives out the result 12,002 in one case in 12,000 in the other - who knows why. So - I'm sorry to bother you so much with my late night thinking ;-) Thanks again for your help and best regards!

    • +Riku Katsumata Hehe, i couldn't help myself - there is an exact 12:1 solution - a minor mod of your version: the differential must drive a 20t bewel gear and the 140t must be driven by a 20t gear - so the ratios would be 20:24*1:2(inner diff)*28/20*20/140 = 1/12 exactly :-) Will try this version and see what it means in terms of geometry of the whole tower. Best regards.

    • MajklSpajkl 24/20 * 24/28 = 36/35 “phase shifter” is for adjust timing of ball feeder, by using differencial gear.

  • This deserves the No Bell GBC award
