A sketch of Walkmman, Drawn on 2nd July.


The main wheel will power an inner bicycle wheel. This bicycle wheel will power a sprocket via a chain, and that sprocket will power another sprocket directly, transferring the power to the Turntable. Below is the progress as of 30th of June on these mechanisms.

The Bicycle Wheel

A movie of them meshing.

Testing the tracking process of the walkman wheel. It will need a good system in place to stop the wheel falling over, as demonstrated by the giddyness of the bicycle wheel on the mock base. When held at the spindle it simply rushed off its track.
