Model: G06 Compound Gear Train with Reversing Pinion Gear

- imagemovie

In this model, a single link with three cylindrical joints couples three gears in one plane and two gears in a parallel plane. In the triple gear plane, a small pinion is used to reverse the direction of motion so that the two outer gears rotate in the same direction. In the parallel plane of motion, the smaller gear rotates with its neighbor on the same shaft while the two larger gear wheels rotate in opposite directions to each other.

The largest gear has 120 teeth, and its smaller mating gear wheel has 60 teeth. The next larger gear on the same shaft as the largest gear has 96 teeth.
