Shay Steam Logging Locomotive - Ephraim Shay started working on the Shay locomotive with Lima Machine Works (later Lima Locomotive Works) in Lima, Ohio. The Shay locomotive features an offset boiler with a multiple(3)-cylinder engine affixed to it on the opposite side, and driving a longitudinal drive shaft geared to the axles via bevel gears.

Dug’s Automata Tips, Techniques and Tricks No.3 March 15, 2011 by Dug North Pinwheels are easy to make and have many uses. Here they are used like bevel gears to change the axis of rotation.


Here is a set of 242 interlocking bevel gears arranged to rotate freely along the surface of a sphere. This sphere is composed of 12 blue gears with 25 teeth each, 30 yellow gears with 30 teeth, 60 orange gears with 14 teeth, and 140 small red gears with 12 teeth. I also found 3 other gear tooth ratios that will work, but this one was my favorite because the small gears emphasize the shape of a truncated rhombic triacontahedron.
