I’d never wondered how any of the following things worked, but the GIFs are so pleasing I thought you might want a bit of a look yourself….
How A Geneva Drive Works
I’d never even heard of the Geneva drive before now, but here’s how it works. It translates a continuous rotation into am intermittent rotation. It’s earliest uses were in clock apparatus made in Geneva, Switzerland, hence the name. It’s used in other types of mechanisms too, for instance the movie projector uses one; the film isn’t passed continuously in front of the lens, rather each slide is held up for 1/24 second duration each, and the Geneva drive sorts that out for you.
How The Pill Press Works
I’d certainly never really thought or concerned myself over the inner workings of a tablet press machine, but who could dislike such a majestic Gif?
This is not a problem I have encountered tbh. This is what Wikipedia has to say about it: “A hypotrochoid is a roulette traced by a point attached to a circle of radius r rolling around the inside of a fixed circle of radius R, where the point is a distance d from the center of the interior circle.” Or if you’re more of an equations kind of guy, try this:
How A Radial Engine Works
I know I’m showing myself to be a right old dunce today, but I’d never heard of a radial engine either. They were commonly used in aircraft before turbine engines became more popular, but they’ve also been used in cars and tanks.
How A Sewing Machine Works
I actually have wondered about how a sewing machine works before. And it’s like this…
I’ve learned some stuff today.
