Model: P02 Double Universal Joint

See the description of model P1. The double universal joint uses two Cardan joints in series. For the right angular relation of the axes, the output speed can be steady when the speed on the input axel is steady.

This model is beautifully constructed for instruction. All the relative angles between the axes and the two couplings are variable. Also the angular position is inscribed on the model so that one can take experimental data from the model.
