this is the second gear to be made which has the actual handle to change gear.

    Please please please can you make a video of it working!

    I don't get how you switch gears.

    Also can you add a clutch.

    This is a very good instructable. It works well. Just so everyone can know, a silver spacer is the same as three blue spacers. I really like this. the only problem I have with it is the fact that the pictures exclude some parts (the corner of step one) but all else is good

    Well maybe some people don't know that a silver spacer is equal to 3 blue spacers. Don't give negative comments to people who are just trying to help out. not all sets include the silver spacers. next time, think before you speak.

    usually "Bravo! Sherlock" is a term used when someone states an obvious fact. That is negative.

    yes, but they are a little loose. well at least mine is. the little grey ones won't work because they don't have a place for the tan pieces to go into
