20 December 2019: Action items on top are completed
Electric Chair #1
In the automata proper everything that moves has been created. The top plate (the oval plate on which the automata proper is mounted) is removable as one piece. This allows me to create the mechanisms in the drive frame (below the oval plate) more easily…and troubleshooting will be much easier.
I am about ready to mount the side frames and the major shafting. The major shafts will be two speeds…one turning 60 rpm, and the other reduced to 1 rpm. I am expecting to turn the crank at 60 rpm, the same as the motor.
I’ve got the gear reduction pulleys created…just finished them this evening. The shake assembly has been completed.
The next major item to work on is the campak…and then the linkages to each individual action component.
Speaking of the campak…it will be easily removable from the drive frame…which will simplify it’s creation and maintenance.
