Awesome instructable! Thanks so much for sharing. One suggestion I have, though, is to replace the butterfly knot with an inline figure 8 (I have also heard it referred to as a running figure 8) since the direction of pull on the knot is known and unidirectional. Given the potential for a heavy load, it might be somewhat easier to untie afterwards.
Gotcha. I usually find that an inline figure 8 is pretty compact (mind you, it uses much less rope than a figure 8 on a bight), but you are right, either works. :)

Welcome to Welding
Very cool. I was thinking that there could be another free-hanging gear at the bottom to keep the chain from kinking up (or just to keep the whole thing in an oval shape), and maybe that gear could be set up to show the minutes like a regular clock hand or with numbers that rotated around? Might have to experiment with that once I get my workshop built and get a laser cutter :)One vote for you
apparently I have 2 accounts (this one and CODIY which appears to be synced with my phone). Anyway, here's some pics from various late stages...
can you advise as to where you bought your laser protection windows?
I like the idea of using these in a treehouse too, but I worry that the panels could be pushed out by active kids, or if someone fell against them. Is this unlikely? I was thinking perhaps cutting the panels so that there is a perimeter of metal mesh that can be locked into the dado with a few screws or a bead of gorilla glue
Finally, a concise and easily understood method of converting wired mice to bluetooth! Thank you for posting this. I look forward to implementing it inside of a logitech trackball that I have wanted to have as bluetooth for some time now.
