    Nicely Done. I like a complicated construct that 'fits' together.

    This is awesome - is it all push-fit, or did you use glue as well?

    This wheel is great, I love the way you made laser cut bearings to go into the design too. We'll be featuring it on our blog at some point soon. In the meantime I can't wait to see the vehicle you make with these.

    Shouldn't you ask permission before 'telling' the author you're going to put their work on your website?

    You don't have to ask, it's just courtesy to do so.

    Having your work blogged about is one of the ways to drive short-term traffic to your projects, and is generally a desirable thing, even if the bloggers don't ask first.

    It's an interesting exercise to click that little graph icon beside a project, and see where views are coming from, and to google for the titles of your projects. Your own mechanical iris project, for instance, has thousands of views thanks to the Hackaday blog, Open Electronics, Thingiverse, Reddit, Pinterest, Facebook, Flickr, even a few hundred views from a forum dedicated to large-sized negatives. Did any of them ask you before discussing your work?

    I don't care what any one has to say about it or if it does any thing but "roll in all directions", I think this is a cool concept and well done. Nice job!
