I needed something to test my newly construct ed roller chain drawbot style 4x8' CNC machine.  What better than an 8" diameter Gearotic gear?  The tabs worked perfectly Smiley  Otherwise I think mine still needs some more calibrati on, and the firmware (under active developme nt; it's complicat ed math, a servo made with brushed essential ly winshield wiper motors with worm gear reduction and an 8192 count optical encoder)  is still a work in progress.  It's within a sixteenth tooth to opposite tooth, not so much for the circle spokes. Otherwise, well, it's a Charlie Brown Special.

It's on the new wall of shame, at least until that wall of my long talked about 20x24' shop space gets insulatio n and drywall.  Can't wait until the 4' diameter kinetic sculpture .

The sled the router is mounted on it too light and rocking back and forth.  I hope to make a better one tomorrow, after browsing (what moose do 😀) the lawn with the rzt54.

If it worked right the first time everybody would be surprised, although that one was pretty sad
