    Making organic gears - GIF

    Making organic gears. Not the single most useful technique, but still interesting. That's "organic" as opposed to "geometric".

    Jon,

    It now makes sense but would not have tried this until seeing the video.

    Thanks, Paul Jones

    This is what makes kids want to be engineers but I would hate to do the math.

    I would call these conjugate gears. They are similar to conjugate cams. Interesting for kinetic art.
