I while since my last post, time for something a little different, the mechanical computation engine.

It started off as this wooden egg cupboard, this is after I sanded it want to know what it looked like before sanding? think orange!


Then re-stained


and Varnished (trying a few bits)


start of the innards ( Left: the chassis of a data tape drive,  Centre: the chassis of a floppy drive, Right: a clock mechanism frame, all with additions)


A bit more done (and in the cupboard)

The address you now get in google+ is only temporary.  At this point you can get a valid address in Picasa.  All your google stuff should be there.  Picasa is changing, but hopefully this will continue to work.

Ooooh, 'Proper job', Lord Pentecost!
Do all those internal cogs connect to anything to look as if they are driving the innards?

As much as possible I've tried to make it looks as if the cogs mesh together actually making them turn is beyond my ability, maybe next time!

It looks like it works, that is the main thing.
What a delightful contraption I love it and all the great work and detail you have put into it.
Thanks very much for sharing the journey in it's creation.

Well done, Lord Pentecost.
That is a tough looking machine that looks as if it will run for decades, without the blue window of death popping up.
I have a slightly smaller computer I'm going to convert. I'm thinking along the lines of the wonderful kettle steam engines the Victorian steam launches use on Lake Windermere, in the Lake District.
I certainly want to start mine now, after seeing your build. (in between six projects I'm doing right now. Why have we only got a 24 hr day? O yes, sleep.)





Thought I better show a pic of the launches for friends outside of the uk.

I'll be interested to see what you come up with Professor Cobb, I considered "rounding off" the sides of mine but couldn't work out how.

Rounding off the corners or making the sides like a barrel?

For large radius corners get a stair railing/hand rail or a wooden pole for hanging clothes, and a band saw. Slice in half and half again.
No bandsaw? A large file.....

It would be more making barrel like sides and still having the side panels removable.

Hmmmm....?
Well, you could cut curved ribs and mount the wood slats to those pieces of wood. Then use hinges on one side with a mini brass doorlatch on the other.
