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’.
