As more and more people join the new age of home manufacturing and engineering, we need some inspiration. This site has captured 507 ‘mechanical movements’. That means odd shaped gears, pullys, yankers, shakers, clickers, scissors, and engine designs. A lot of the designs are static, but some have been upgraded and animated.
Sometimes it’s cool just to make things move mechanically for the hell of it. A lot of this has a real ‘steampunk’ vibe if you are into making that. These designs can be re-created and possibly 3D printed, laser cut or CNC’d. Either way you should check them out.
