Pedals and Magazines


It’s been a good week.  I’ve got a few electrical parts in transit.  They will be here early next week.  Meanwhile I’m creating the pulleys and the hand crank and cams.  Most else is completed  I expect Big Wheel Lift #1 to be under power late next week.  The Big Wheel Lift #1 project sheet is here.

I was pleased to receive the April-May issue of Automata Magazine.  I’m glad that this magazine is available and hope that it will continue to be published for decades to come.  There is a lot of good information in this little gem  Here is a link to Automata Magazine.

I’ve identified the A Sunday Drive passengers. I’ve got the body parts laying around on my bench…teaching me how they want to move. The A Sunday Drive project sheet is here.

Monday thru Friday I begin my day doing an hour of Tai Chi.  I’ve been doing Tai Chi for about 3 years now and appreciate the positive impact that it’s made on my body.  It used to be that I had back pain all the time.  Now I rarely have back pain.  I blame Tai Chi for that.  Another part of Tai Chi that I appreciate is the ‘meditation time’.  Some of my Tai Chi sets are done in my studio.  I have automata in front of me as I exercise.  I’m able to contemplate…to consider…to ‘what if’.  

Big Wheel Lift #1 is nearing completion. Almost ready to power up.
