Hand-cranked gear sculpture by Bill Durovchic

Hand-cranked gear sculpture by Bill Durovchic
Take a look at the stunning mechanical beauty of Bill Durovchic's kinetic sculpture. Shown here is a piece entitled Magnetic Gear Box . The sculpture has a 5-inch diameter steel plate with 3-inch tall black anodized aluminum legs, and some 30 brass gears! When you turn crank, the gears rotate on magnetic spindles. You can reconfigure the spindles to change patterns. Very, very nice.

Visit Bill Durovchic's web site for more information and photographs of his work.

Very cool stuff. Perhaps you would be interested in my hand-cranked ambigram automata. See them on YouTube
