Introduction: Knex Manual/Motor Gear Box
Step 1: The Base
Yeah, everything else goes on here.
Step 2: The Motor
This section is the motor.
Step 3: Adding the Motor
The gear from the motor could mesh with another... if it's set to.
Step 4: A Bit of Support
It's easier if this is just an extra step. If not the next step is too long.
The added pieces in this picture are: 1 green rod, 1 white rod, 1 blue rod, and 1 yellow connector.
Step 5: Moving Gear
This gear shifts forwards and backwards to mesh with either the motor's gear or the manual gear.
Step 6: Adding the Shifting Gear
This clips straight onto the motor.
Step 7: The Manual Gear
If the motor jams, switch to this.
Step 8: Adding the Manual Gear
Just add the red and green connector.
Step 9: The "output" Gear
The rod is what to connect the turning part to. It could be any size.
Step 10: Adding the Output Gear
2 connections here.
Step 11: How to Use (you're Done Anyway)
With the motor facing towards you, if the trigger is left, turning is manual, if the trigger is right, then the turning is motorised.
We have a be nice policy.
Please be positive and constructive.
