Basic idea of this project is to use some of the design elements of Hammond (and other) tonewheel organs to make a MIDI-Controlled robot. The design currently includes 3d printed gears, some flat-pattern acrylic, custom pickups, and sheet metal tonewheels.

1. Pickups: Made with a 3d printed bobbin and wound using my pickup winder project
2. 3D Printed Components - Gears, Brackets, Motor Mount
3. Polepieces - Cut from Mild Steel Rods
4. Laser Cut Chassis
- 3D printed PETG motor mount, High Torque NEMA23 Stepper Motor, and a set of gears makes up a 1:8 gearbox.
Drive section is composed of more gears + 8mm rod stock and tonewheels
