    How To Make A DIY Mini BBQ Rotating Grill

    G'day everyone and welcome back,

    In this video I show you the construction of a mini BBQ, made with my SIEG SX3L milling machine and my Colchester Bantam lathe: I applied an idea that came to me while watching a documentary on the motion of our planets, the movement you see is precession , similar to that of a spinning top, but not on a horizontal but vertical plane: saving belts and gears and using only the weight force, I hope you like it !!

    AB SHOP, Congratulations, more than worthy of collecting the weeks prize via project and presentation. Rarely will I watch an entire video, but didn't skip a second!

    Can't recall making anything with precession as a goal, being that it counters logical mechanics in a way. But to accomplish even cooking it's critical. Intuition said an uneven tooth count was needed to cause precession, untrue; only needs uneven ratio. Your combination of 8 tooth ring and 6 tooth spur are 1.333/ 0.75. That appears ideal.
    Don't know anyone with a laser? While there are many options, beating the rounded gear form (nodes?) is a challenge. None come to mind so easy to clean after use.
