  Wow!   What is your profession? Del?
Retired now, I was an electronics design engineer, but I've always dabbled in mechanics, as in this little story:-
In my last job I designed a pressed steel part for a peristaltic pump, my boss complained that the press tool to manufacture it was too expensive (just a couple of hundred $). So I said, that's ok, I'll pay for it ... if you pay me a few cents royalty on each part we use  >:D
He soon shut up and paid for it!  ;D

Del, my brain is so far from engineering, electronic or mechanical that I'm totally amazed by this piece of wonder and other similar "toys" you've come up with. I salute you and then take my hat off to you and your engineering mind, not only thinking about these things but actually making working models of them.  :OK  Way cool!  8)

Really cool Del. I was watching the toys that made America last night and they didnít have anything that impressive on there.

Love good old fashioned mechanics. You can visually see how they work.
