When ever I view your webpage and it's animations, the axiom "standing on the shoulder of giants" goes through my mind over and over.

Thanks for these imaginative, mind-stretching exercises

Wouldn't the drum be rotating at a 3:1 ratio, not a 2:1?
The ring gear has 64 teeth and the sun gear has 32 so 32 / (64+32) = 1/3. Excellent animations though.

Dear Rich, Thank you for your visit to my web page and excellent correction you have made. Yes, every three rotations of the arm the drum makes only one rotation.

Love it! But as a novice to these devices, it takes a long time to figure out what their purpose is. A brief explanation at the beginning would be great. After watching this a few times, I assume that this device permits cranking at two different speed
