Kind of a fun project. See the pictures. Cut on a small desktop extruded AL router. Read about it in more detail here.

If you set it up with the proper “joints” in Fusion 360 you can animate the gear train inside of Fusion 360. I have a model like that somewhere. Use “motion links” not “contact sets”.

Some friends of mine from my CNC group made a bunch of rope twisters for their (and a few other) scout troops. Utilized exact same gear train.

Very cool.

Gears are a gateway drug, once you start you keep making them. Have you seen the huge Spirograph people make for sidewalk chalk?
