“If you were trying to make a mechanism that transmitted rotary motion smoothly, here are three mechanisms to avoid.
1). The well-known sliding block mechanism which translates steady circular motion into a wobbly approximation of it.
2). A magnet rotating near another magnet which picks up its motion in a fitful manner.
3). A bearing which deviates from the ideal cylindrical form by having two ears, two noses and four eyeballs added to its circumference.
The result is an uneasy action which might not be desirable in many machines but is OK for this Shakespeare-inspired item. Comes with a very small pair of shoes and a facsimile of a spread from Sue Spooner’s school edition of Henry IV part 2.”
