   I am having too much fun with my Laser and Gearotics Motion! Here is a video of my latest project https://youtu.be/VZ3yz_iO6No  . The mechanism is very unique in that I haven't seen one that can run for hours on a single start. You'll notice that there was a slight pause after I manually spun the outer spinner to work my magic. Any guesses? I plan to incorpora te it into a larger piece which is my version of John Hansen's Iris.

A battery is too obvious and doesn't account for the pause, although that could have been time to turn on the switch.

I'm stumped

I think you have a little hamster wheel in the back and the initial spin is just to wake-up the little fellow.  Grin

 Thanks tweakie but if I had Hamsters back there  shouldn't I have included the Hamster Dance Song? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1qN72LEQnaU
