Progress report

I've been looking at the current set up with the pin wheel and I'm having the same problem in that all the action is moving too fast. Therefore, I am investigating using a worm gear to slow everything down. 

Dave Johnson (who makes automata in the theme of Sysiphus) made a worm gear using a large plasterboard screw (I think) which was a brilliant idea, so I went to my local DIY store and bought a bag and have been using the Gear Template Generator to try and make some gears that fit. I'll be in my workshop tonight trying to fit everything together.
