homemade gearbox from scanner/printer parts


 

Here is my new gearbox with stepper motors. Base of the gearbox is from two scanners/printer canon pixma mp150 (metal frame, motor and three gears), Last gear with output shaft is added by me. First setup was made with belt, but as I expected traction was not good. So at last version I come up with fourth gear on output shaft.

i like homemade stuff, really nice.....

I added the same url as in the post and got 

"You have specified an invalid media URL or embed code."

what is wrong ?

But it sounds like in your case you're using the new YouTube embed code-the system only supports the old style. It's an option you check when selecting embedding on YouTube.

just tried and with old style, no error message but also and no video in my post. In my last posts I used simple youtube link and everything was fine.

thats a cool way to do tracks
