28.08.2010 07:13 wolfJaverh - I think the term for that is "backlash" http://www.robotgames.net/resources/Gears/gears.htm Yes, and I think we both realize that building such a mechanism with a ridiculous gear reduction would only be interesting from a theoretical point of view. (Maybe that's why I've never seen such a device listed in Guiness) Heck I'd still like to see something that at least in theory has a gear that turns once every trillion years.

26.08.2010 23:26 wolfThat's amazing considering that's all done in your own workshop. I remember reading decades ago about someone building the world's slowest moving mechanism. (Guiness stated the "precession gear" on the Hans Olsen clock takes 26,000 years to make one revolution. This guy decided to better that record). I think to do that you would need several small gears mounted on larger gears.
