Small KNEX rack and pinion. Answered

Hello everybody it's been a long time since I have posted a forum topic on here but I just built a a new KNEX rack and pinion I would like to so everybody.

The only other rack and pinion on Instructables was made by Killer~SafeCracker but it was huge and not to practical to put into a model.

So here is a new rack and pinion that I made and it's way smaller then the one built by Killer~SafeCracker. The secret to this design is that it' uses a Micro KNEX to build the rack.

I think there is a lot of neat things that could be made with this so please tell me what you come up with!

Great idea! Very compact. I think that this could easily be incorporated in many K'NEX models, perhaps as the steering mechanism of a K'NEX car.

Yes maybe it could be used for that but I need to make a new version because this one has some problems.

Good stuff, always thought it was strange that they never made a K'Nex rack gear.

Thanks! I'm working on a better one that won't slip as much.
