Ever seen hacked clockwork before chaps? Laughing (you probably have but here's some of mine anyway Wink)

MK2:






MK1:






The above devices were made from really old broken clock mechanisms, bits of tin can, copper wire, bits of old cassette tape player and nuts and bolts.
Unintentionally they turned out to look like penny farthings, which is cool Laughing
I had no idea how clocks worked when I picked these up, but I examined them and diassembeled them and then hacked them into wind-up clockwork minions of doom! Or fun clockwork-roller things Smile


Videos of them in operation!

My little cousin helped make MK1:

This one was an experiment really, it gets stuck sometimes, but I recombobulated it recently and now it works a bit better Smile


I've made about 3 or 4 better ones more scince these two, but I don't have photographs of them yet ... so look out for them Smile
