Introduction: 128 Tooth Gear, Kinetic Sculpture

Picture of 128 Tooth Gear, Kinetic Sculpture

Using a gear generator i found online, ( http://woodgears.ca/gear/index.html ) I cut his 32 inch diameter gear, with 128 teeth using a jigsaw. The smaller gear was cut on a band saw. Before making this large scale piece I made a scaled down version for prototyping, using the same gear ratio, but on a 16 inc large gear.
