A project log for Vulcan Salute

With this bit of animated art on your wall, it would be illogical if you did not receive extra long life and prosperity.

After the parts were finished printing, I cut a hand outline out of foam board and used plastic rivets to hold the three gears on. I used hot glue to hold the motor mount to the foam board. The motor starts to stall at voltages below 2V, and that is about the speed that I want the Vulcan Salute to run at, so now I am designing a smaller pinion gear and a larger bull gear.
