Hand-cranked wooden biplane automaton by Timberkits

Check out this new wooden biplane kit. It looks like it has a nice compound action. It certainly is a good example of how to use o-ring material as pulley belts to transfer motion across a distance and to change the axis of rotation. For more detailed instructions on how to make belts out of o-ring material, check out Number 9 of of my Tips, Tricks, and Techniques article series.

The Bi-plane kit shown here is another great product from TimberKits, who offers an extensive line of automaton kits.

Here is another place you can get the wooden biplane automaton kit.
